With the announcement of the QCAA prescribed recorded live performance list for the 2022 external assessment, Stephanie Tudor and Sam Neill chat with very special guests from Red Leap Theatre to discuss all things The Arrival.
Julie Nolan, Red Leap’s Artistic Director and co-director of The Arrival and Ella Becroft, Red Leap’s Associate Director and performer, provide insights into the production, including how the ideas came to life in the rehearsal room, the process of page to stage, and what inspirations were behind the beautiful imagery created in the show.
This was such a fantastic and very informative chat that we were lucky enough to split this into two parts, so enjoy Part 1.
