Audience and Practitioner Feedback
Working with FEAST has been fantastic, it was such a hugely rewarding experience bringing our latest work to the festival, the audience were extremely engaged and the festival organisers are an amazing and valued support. We were thrilled with the feedback from the families who came and explored our sensory experience, FEAST offers an incredible opportunity for immersive art at Malvern Cube for both the attendees and artists. Magical! Emma Fay, Enter Edem
Thankyou for such a lovely relaxing day! I really enjoyed performing at FEAST Festival. I could not fault the staff in any way, they were all so helpful with setting up and any issues we had. The performance space was perfect and My experience performing was delightful. I had the pleasure of sharing this wonderful experience with family's and children of all ages. All of which came in in wonder and embraced the calming experience. Thankyou for having us at FEAST and even providing us with some delicious chilli at the end! Charlotte Parker, Enter Edem
I was fortunate to perform at Feast Theatre Festival this year. It was a very well organised festival that suited Enter Edem’s family target audience. We were given a fantastic Hall space with blackout curtains to allow plenty of space for our Crystal Clear Experience and our UV Lighting. After a very warm welcome the Feast team helped us to set up. They worked very hard to make it a efficient and smooth as possible! At the end they did the same to help us pack down, even providing food!! Its just a shame I couldn’t have watched the rest of the festival!! Philip Kingsley-Elton, Actor - Director with Enter Edem
Milk Presents had a great time at FEAST. The audience size was lovely and impressive for a Sunday night and the volunteer team went out of their way to make us feel at home! We were also thrilled to make the t-shirt! Ruby Glaskin, Producer, Milk Presents
It was wonderful to work with your Tuesday drama group on the Thursday 9th and Friday 10th for the two-day Playback training. The participants were all so present and generous taking creative and personal risks to try out this unique improvisational kind of theatre. They appeared to gain a lot from having a two-day residency, many individuals commented that they didn't usually work and immerse themselves in drama for a whole day. This seemed to deepen the group cohesion and their appreciation for each other, encouraging each other to 'have a go' and step into the unknown.
I was delighted to see five participants courageously step forward and perform on the Friday night in front of a live audience, I hope that they feel proud of their achievements. Being on an empty stage, with no script, nowhere to hide and to listen deeply to a story shared by an audience member is not easy and they did so well, instantly playing-back so many moments. I look forward to hearing how thee new skills develop in Malvern. Rose Thorn, Dramatherapist and 'The Golden Thread' Playback Theatre Performer
