Vey Straker, performing The Magnetic Diaries, explains
What did you know of Wedmore before getting involved with our Arts Festival? To be honest, we had never heard of Wedmore. But we are very glad we know about it now!
What do you prefer -
Which of our
And which in
the rest of the world?
I loved exploring the Franz Josef glacier
Who do you most admire in the field of drama and/or poetry? Robert le Page, the Canadian theatre phenomenon. He has such courage in drawing on his own experiences, including his vulnerabilities, and then scaling them up through visual trickery, to make a lasting impression on his audience.
After Wedmore, what’s your next project? I am working on Reaction Theatre Makers' latest production Honey, which we are planning to tour in Spring 2018. It is an ensemble piece, set in the Welsh mountains; a lyrical, beautifully presented tale of community and all communities that are breaking down, but with an unexpected hopeful message at its core.
The Magnetic Diaries will be staged in The Village Hall at 7.30pm on Thursday 13 July
