NEW ARTICLE & REVIEW FOR 'WHAT IT FEELS LIKE'


Dr Ellen Welch has offered a unique perspective on What It Feels Like in her recently published review for medical journal InnoVAIT, written for the Royal College of General Practitioners. The 2011 hit Encompass Production focused on the aftermath of an accident that causes Nick to fall into a coma and subsequently the 'in-between' of life and death, where he and his wife Sarah go on a brutal tour of human nature at its best and worst. Dr Ellen Welch describes the play as:

"Stunning...unique and very moving. For medical professionals this play offers an opportunity to reflect on universal human issues."

LAST MONTH'S RESIDENCIES...AND A WELCOME TO OUR NEW HEAD OF EVENTS!

The Winter Residency was another fun-filled evening and a great event to end our run of Egham events for a while - but we'll be back there in a few months for one (or two) last goodbyes to the place that gave birth to The Residency events!

The Residency: Live Music at Mascara Bar, London was a terrific night that made us feel very lucky to have such powerful new talent entertain and help us fundraise for our projects. The night featured BBC playlisted Harry David, Residency favourite Vivienne Youel, the immensely talented Blushing Bones, the powerful NE(B)IA and the delightful Lizzie Fisher. Check out music and more from these acts by going to our webpage for them here!

The Residency events will now be taking a break until March as we go heavily into pre-production with our 2012 projects - but feat not! We are pleased to welcome our brand new Head of Events - Sophie Anderson! Sophie will be taking over our events for the next few months and we're very much looking forward to what she'll bring to Encompass - including some exciting new endeavours! Expect our events to be bigger and better come March...

OUTREACH IN EAST LONDON
Encompass has recently begun assisting the Theatre Royal Stratford East in their 'Winging It' project, which gives 13 to 16 year olds a chance to build their confidence in performing and storytelling through improvisation. Luke Manning (Associate Performer), Christianna Mason (Associate Artistic Director) and Jonathan Woodhouse (Artistic Director) are very much enjoying contributing to the artistic development of young people in East London and look forward to seeing the progress of this great project.

WEBSITE UPDATES!
Whilst the slightly Christmassy wintery theme is gone (ironic since it's started to snow this weekend) we do have a few changes to the website:

-A new 'Press' page which includes a plethora of fantastic quotes and features from the press on our productions and events. We were surprised by just how many there were when we compiled them so why not check them out yourself?

-The brand new 'Associated Artists' page allows you to see who is/has been with Encompass on each production both past and present, and in what roles. There are many bios/photos available with more coming soon for our 2012 projects!


We hope you've enjoyed reading this update - it's going to be quite an exciting year for us. Thanks for your support!
