Petal Pillar and Charlene Kelly from the Blue Teapot Theatre Company, Galway are interviewed by Katarzyna Ojrzyńska from the Department of Drama Studies and pre-1800 literature at the University of Lodz, Poland.
In their conversation with Katarzyna, Petal and Charlene talk about the history of the Blue Teapot Theatre Company and the Blue Teapot Performing Arts School. They all discuss synergistic prompting and the Meisner technique, the arts, the challenges of performing on stage and in front of a camera for actors with disabilities, and Blue Teapot’s involvement with the European project “Crossing the Line”. The conversation also provides an insight into Charlene’s play Into the Dark Woods, rescheduled to later this year, and other difficulties related to Covid-19.
