3 works that playfully focused in on the daily ecology of a city centre hotel. Beginning with Where did you last have it?, where audiences were invited to find actors in the hotel and listen into their interior monologues- all tied together in that each of the dozen stories had something lost within it, followed by The Minutes where we invited audiences to join us in one of the boardrooms, for 12 consecutive half hour meetings on one evening about…er…very little at all…. as we together mischievously deconstructed and lampooned traditional meeting structures, through to And We Are Now Taking Questions From The Floor… where similarly audiences dropped in and out, in the role of faux-journalists, of a 6 hour press conference, about er again... nothing in particular, and in doing so, we toyed with the gimmicks, stereotypes and hackneyed form these PR events have lured us to accept as we see them all over the 24hour media.
These works were commissioned jointly by Leeds City Council and City Inn Hotel, Leeds
