Part of the Transform 2016 FestivaL
Designed by Hannah Sibai
Co-production between Chris Goode Company and West Yorkshire Playhouse
WANTED, performed as part of Transform 16
To launch the newly independent Transform, previous festival favourites Chris Goode & Company (creators of 9, Transform 12) have been commissioned to make a brand new show. Starting with a totally blank canvas where anything could happen, they’ve divided the show into three-minute segments and have been working with a diverse range of individuals, families, community groups and local organisations from across Leeds – each of whom has been asked the question: “what do you most want to see on stage?”.
Maybe they’ll want to fill the stage with balloons or majorettes.
Maybe they’ll want three minutes of slapstick or ballet or bunny racing.
Maybe it’ll be stand-up, or a political speech, or just a little oasis of silence.
Whatever they want, it’ll end up in WANTED.
Award-winning director Chris Goode and a topflight team of collaborators are transforming these unpredictable desires into reality, creating a unique and unforgettable show that asks what happens when you really give your audiences what they want.
“Extraordinary… watching it has completely changed my understanding of what theatre is capable of.”
Matt Trueman, Theatre Critic, on 9
