Aylesbury theatre group vow to keep performing

Despite coronavirus closing their venue, an Aylesbury theatre group are finding other ways to reach their audience.

Aylesbury's Unbound Theatre company have launched a new project to provide online content in the wake of suspending their upcoming live performances.

Following government guidelines on coronavirus, Unbound's home venue Queens Park Arts Centre has temporarily closed to the public, and multiple live events in the Town Centre have been cancelled.

However, the company is launching a new project titled 'Keep Telling Stories', which will see the creation of new audio and video content every day via the company's social media channels. 

Unbound's Creative Producer Dario Knight explains further:

"As is right and proper we're putting our live performances on hold for the time being, but that doesn't mean we can't entertain audiences online!

"Our talented team of actors, writers, editors and directors are working remotely from home on brand new audio and video content, which will be posted on our social media channels as of Monday 23rd March."

Unbound's first digital endeavour - entitled 'A Sonnet A Day' - will see them create an online audio archive of Shakespeare's Sonnets, with a new poem posted online every day as of 23rd March.

Dario added:

"We're delighted to be working with a number of professional voice actors on this,.

"Not just UK-based artists like Erika Sanderson and Gareth Richards, but performers from all over the world who are donating their time to support us.

"I hope we can use this project and others like it to entertain audiences, promote the talented storytellers who work with us, and help spread a bit of goodwill for our home venue of Queens Park Arts Centre."

'Keep Telling Stories' will include further audio content such as comedy sketches and readings, illustrated videos, filmed performances, material from Unbound's archive of past productions, and chance for audience to tell their own stories, too.
