Last night you whispered something just as I was falling asleep I should have written it down by morning time that kind of stuff is always gone that kind of stuff is born and dies within a second.

Critic reviews

It’s agile, it’s risky and it’s a way of rapidly prototyping new theatre and physical performance work.

Ignition is a promising format. A sustained burst of creativity tested out on an audience before complacency can set in. A different cast and we’d have a totally discrete show. A different line of inspiration and we’d have been transported to a totally new destination. Nerve-racking for the company, pretty nerve-racking for the audience too. Not a bad way to light up an evening
