I Wish I Was Lonely ... at ICT

I Wish I Was Lonely, Hannah Jane Walker and Chris Thorpe's participatory show about mobile phones, contactibility and feeling lonely, came to ICT on Saturday.

The award-winning poet and theatre-maker duo brought their show, in which the audience are required to keep their mobiles on, up from Battersea Arts Centre where it is playing before a UK tour.  They performed it to forty of our older members and took part in a brilliant post-show question and answer session.

The event was produced by our trainee director Angie Pena-Arenas.












These Walls - a day in the life

Here's a new film by Mattia Pagura showing a day in the life of ICT, shot during our hugely successful production of three new plays in February.


ICT's first TEDTalk - at the Royal Albert Hall


ICT will be part of our first ever TEDTalk as part of TedMed 2014, taking place at the Royal Albert Hall.

We'll be working with the leading neuroscientist Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore on a new talk.  We last worked with Professor Blakemore on Brainstorm, our play about teenage brain development (see the video above).

The TEDMed event, titled Imagining the Future of Medicine, will be hosted by comedian and presenter Dara Ó Briain with special guest Jay Walker, Curator of TEDMED and the Library of the History of Human Imagination.

It will feature a range of inspiring short talks from world-renowned speakers and artistic performances, including a performance from The Kaos Signing Choir for Deaf & Hearing Children.
