Patrick Russell - Artist Testimonial
PATRICK RUSSELL (PLAYWRIGHT AND PERFORMER), TELLS US ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE OF SHOWING WORK AT SHOOT 2016 AND SOME OF HIS SUCCESSES TO DATE.
At Shoot Festival 2014 you're as likely to work alongside a breakdancer as you are a mime artist.
There are no constrictions on the work you want to make, it's about making excellent new work, and the Shoot team do everything they can to help make that happen.
It also helps put you on the map, giving you a really wide audience, and without it I wouldn't be doing the work I am with the REP today. I have, with Shoots support, been selected to be on Birmingham REP's artist development scheme: Foundry.
I had so much fun working with Shoot and I'm glad to say I keep bumping into people from it all the time. It's a festival for artists that want to keep on making brilliant performances.
