ABOUT THE COMPANY
Analogue formed in 2007 to make ambitious new theatre inspired by real stories and contemporary ethical questions. We collaborate with a wide network of pioneering thinkers, bringing together research and invention to create performance that fuses the human with the scientific.
We are particularly excited by the possibilities of documentary, neuroscience, interactivity and new technologies and strive to cross boundaries of continents and disciplines, embracing audiences and arts organisations locally, nationally and internationally.
Since our formation, we have produced a number of award-winning and critically acclaimed shows:
MILE END (2007) – our debut show won a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Festival, alongside a number of other nominations, and toured the UK twice, launching the company to great success.
BEACHY HEAD (2009) – our second show was a sell-out success at the Edinburgh Festival, toured the UK and Europe and was our first play published by Oberon Books.
LECTURE NOTES ON A DEATH SCENE (2010) – our third show was an intimate one-on-one performance that toured the UK, marking a new formal departure for our work.
2401 OBJECTS (2011) – our fourth show was our first international co-production, and also won a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Festival prior to an extensive UK tour.
Analogue’s work regularly tours the UK, and increasingly is being developed through international collaboration. Our work ranges in form and scale from stage-shows to audio tours, multi-platform experiences and intimate, interactive performances.
Analogue has also developed an impressive track record of education and participatory work, ranging from schools workshops, university and drama school residencies, professional development work, teaching, mentoring and public engagement science events.
Analogue is an on-going collaboration between co-directors Hannah Barker & Liam Jarvis, Producer Ric Watts, Production Manager Helen Mugridge and Associate Artist Lewis Hetherington. We also work with an ever-expanding pool of collaborators from fields as diverse as neuroscience, social-psychology, pervasive media, computer aided modelling, movement, performance, scenography and playwrighting.
Analogue has been an Associate Company of Farnham Maltings since 2008, where the company is currently administratively based. We are also an Associate Company of Shoreditch Town Hall, and between 2010-12, we were an Affiliate Company at the National Theatre Studio.
Key partners in the creation of our work to date include: Farnham Maltings, New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich, Oldenburgisches Staatstheater, Shoreditch Town Hall, National Theatre Studio, Drum Theatre Plymouth, Arts Council England, Wellcome Trust, and Royal Holloway University of London.
