MA Creative Practice student featured on BBC radio

BBC Radio Merseyside presenter Roger Phillips welcomed MA by Creative Practice student Amy Courtenay in to the studio to discuss her new production.

Walk a Mile in My Shoes features a 14-strong cast and is based on Amy’s degree research into perceptions and recollections of local buildings and spaces, which have a philanthropic or social historical heritage.

Directed by Amy, the 90-minute performance is informed by archival and recorded conversations with local people and organisations, and draws on Ethnodrama, Verbatim, Promenade and Immersive performance traditions.

Amy’s MA work also includes a legacy application for a blue plaque for Liverpool Hope’s new Creative Campus building, which is the historic site of the first child protection society in Great Britain – now known as the NSPCC.

Walk a Mile in My Shoes will be performed at Everton Shrewsbury House Youth and Community Centre on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th September. Tickets can be purchased via info.walkamileinmyshoes@gmail.com and money raised will be donated to local charities.
