Lecturer brings "unusual story" to Exeter's Bikeshed Theatre
A new performance by a University of Exeter Drama lecturer that is somewhere between stand-up comedy and theatre is being performed at the Bikeshed Theatre, Exeter tonight and to November 3.
Dr Anna Harpin's theatre company, Idiot Child, will be performing their new show I Could've Been Better, a simple if somewhat unusual story of love, loneliness, and trying to get things right. The play was devised and written by Dr Harpin and Jimmy Whiteaker, using a mixture of script writing and improvisation to create the piece which highlights the failure of everyday life.
Dr Harpin explained: "We wanted to explore feelings that we felt were all too common, but also all too frequently denied. James is, in some ways, a representation of how we all perhaps secretly feel inside. I think we wanted to explore the strange beauty of failure in a theatrical and playful way."
She added: "In the drama studio I am always keen to foster an atmosphere of possibility and this relies on it being a safe space in which to try and fail and to try again. I impress upon students that learning is a process of unknowing a great deal of the time. The rehearsal room has many valuable lessons for critical thinking in the seminar room, in its acceptance of ambiguity, uncertainty, and curiosity."
