An Imperfect Introduction to Queer Performance

We had the pleasure of being invited to take visual minutes for a panel discussion at the National Theatre, as part of their series exploring queer theatre, to mark 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales. 

To mark 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales, the National Theatre hosted a series of talks, rehearsed readings, exhibitions and screenings, to look at how theatre has chartered the LGBT+ experience.

We had the pleasure of being invited to take visual minutes for a panel discussion as part of this series, inviting young adults 16-21 to join four prominent artists from a variety of performance backgrounds to explore what is understood by the term 'queer', when in a performance setting and the making of theatre.

The four artists: Mamoru Iriguchi, Eilidh MacAskill, Nando Messias and Lois Weaver invited questions about their own approaches to theatre making, elaborating on how their experiences throughout their lives and careers have helped shaped their work.

Visual Minutes created by Isolde Godfrey & Jess Harvey


We worked with Woven Ink to help us minute a panel talk and discussion on our youth programme. The illustrations were a fantastic way to minute the event and helped reflect the creativity of the conversations. Jess and Isolde were able to pull interesting, important and thoughtful reflections into the artwork. We’d absolutely work with them again.
