This event will take place at the New Vic Theatre, Newcastle under Lyme on July 29th, 2016 in the Main Auditorium and will be the culmination of work which is taking place in the North Staffordshire coalfield area during February to June 2016 and will involve the project team working with Borderlines at the New Vic Theatre to develop an initial co-production event (“Is there anybody there?”), a community outreach process (“Utopia Ghosthunting”) and an intergenerational preproduction event (“The New Vic Ghost Lab”) ultimately leading to a performance tentatively called ‘The Utopia Séance’. The performance will be followed by a public, live, roundtable discussion at the same venue, where feedback will be taken from the public, project partners and participants.
