Analogue is an award-winning South East-based company that makes visceral new theatre. Our multidisciplinary process fuses the high tech with the low tech, bringing together contemporary technologies with ancient theatrical traditions. Our stories are rooted by an in-depth research process, drawing upon collaborations with leading experts in fields as diverse as histopathology, neuroscience and social science.
The company is led by Artistic Directors Liam Jarvis and Hannah Barker, in collaboration with Producer Ric Watts. Our associates and collaborators come from a range of disciplines, from writing and directing to puppetry and computer game design. Company members have worked and trained with the likes of Theatre-Rites, Chris Goode, Suspect Culture, Gecko, and Punchdrunk.
Our debut show Mile End premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2007 to critical acclaim, picking up two awards (Fringe First, Arches Brick Award) and a further five nominations at the festival. The show has since toured the UK twice during 2008 and gave the company our international debut at the Pazz08 Festival in Germany.
Our second show Beachy Head was premiered in South East venues in 2009, prior to a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival, in co-production with New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich.
In 2010 we created micro-performance Lecture Notes on a Death Scene, an immersive experience for single audience members, which was developed at the Pulse Fringe Festival, Farnham Maltings and The Lowry. We were also awarded a prestigious Theatre Sandbox commission for our interactive autobiographical performance event Living Film Set, in collaboration with The Junction and the Microsoft Research Labs, Cambridge.
Analogue is currently developing 2401 Objects, a major new co- production with Oldenburgisches Staatstheater and New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich. The project is being developed at the National Theatre Studio and Farnham Maltings, and in collaboration with Dr Jacopo Annese of The Brain Observatory, San Diego.
