Which Way to the Waterfall
Volcano’s Artistic Director, Paul Davies, worked with Brazilian participants of the Reside Festival over a fortnight in March, on a digital residency entitled Which Way to the Waterfall.
Originally, Paul was meant to travel to Recife, in the north-eastern state of Pernambuco, to lead a residency programme, but as a result of COVID-19 he instead worked with Portuguese and sign-language translators, utilising a number of online platforms to ensure that the residency continued online.

VOLCANO THEATRE launched a program of new and ongoing works for this period of closure due to the coronavirus. The company called the programme ENCOUNTERS UNKNOWN.
“All of this work is geared to the continuity of the creative spirit, to a sense of communality and to the idea that when we do return to the rehearsal room, perhaps we will do so with a greater understanding of our lives and the places that we live and the people that we choose to love.” Artistic Director, Paul Davies
The main project of the program was NOTES FROM THE INTERIOR, a series of performative tasks set by Paul Davies, to which anyone was welcome to respond. Each week, the company released a new public task based on text, image or some other stimulus.
