1. The Session is part of Carran Waterfield’s Birnam Wood project (a ‘wyrd’ recounting of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth) devised and performed by 3rd Year BA (Hons) students from the University of Manchester Drama Dept. with facilitation by Carran Waterfield.

    Birnam Wood was originally developed in association with the RSC in Stratford in 2010 funded by Arts Council England and an RSC studio development award.

    This 2013 project is a reframing of the original material; a further development of the work and the fifth in a series of projects relating to an exploration of Shakespeare’s Macbeth from a feminine perspective.

  5. Beastly Beauties was a devised work I created with University of Birmingham Final Year Drama Students (2004/5). This piece was the starting point for what has become my yet to be finished Birnam Wood Project. In this first sketch of ideas I started with mythology, fairytales, Paula Rego paintings, grandmas, tree study and the idea of a society of women - The Tree Society. I later developed and directed the same work with Kindle Theatre (now Kiln Ensemble). It became Kindle's first Edinburgh show attracting some strong reviews for the work and for this new company I helped establish made up of graduates from the Department of Drama and Theatre Arts who worked on Beastly Beauties with me.
