A Conversation with Fizzy Rascals about their experiences working In THE DPS LAB

Next up on my local artists segment I will be interviewing three independent theatre companies and collectives who have been working with Dead Puppet Society on professional developments as a part a professional development program called THE DPS Lab. First up was the Naughty Corner Collective and next up are the Fizzy Rascals, a group of experimental theatre makers interested in pushing the boundaries of form and visual aesthetic. Their core team consists of four members: Jennifer Bagg, Fiona MacDonald, Mark McDonald and Linnea Tengroth. Working collaboratively to devise works with a focus on movement and striking images, we believe in striving for a universal language in storytelling. Our works are handmade with vigour and passion, accumulating skills with each new process and striving for big images. We bring expertise in areas such as devising, physical theatre, acting and directing. Currently we are pursuing an interdisciplinary practice, exploring ways of incorporating the language of film, puppetry and dance into live performance. Here's what they had to say...

A Conversation with the Naughty Corner Collective about their experiences working in THE DPS LAB

Through heightened design elements and investigative storytelling, The Naughty Corner explores what it is to be human through works that uncover the underbelly of the ordinary. I was very fortunate to be able to sit down with them and have a chat about their creative journey with the DPS Academy, a professional development opportunity for emerging artists working in the form of visual theatre. Here's what they had to say...
