The Studios Online: Dark Room & Nothing – In conversation with the artists

Esplanade Co Ltd

We dig into our archives and unearth with Edith Podesta’s Dark Room (2016), giving a voice to the incarcerated, and Natalie Hennedige’s Nothing (2007), in which six individuals come together in an intimate and absurd exploration of life, death and love.

Join in a conversation with Edith Podesta (Director & Writer, Dark Room) and Natalie Hennedige (Playwright & Director, Nothing) as they look back on these works and share their thoughts on how the themes still resonate today.

Esplanade Studios will be streaming Dark Room & Nothing from 23 May, Sat, 3pm to 29 May, Fri, 11.59pm. – More details coming soon.

About Dark Room (2016)
