“Movement can be about being still, it can be about a lack of movement and the tension that can create. The beats, and the pauses, and the silences, and what’s unsaid – but so much being said at the same time.”
Actor Matthew Barker outlines his process of learning to play a son, a daughter, a brother and a sister - all within the precincts of the same character in Things I Know To Be True. He discusses the edifying journey through language, science and autobiographical illustration, which enabled an understanding that there are as many stories about transition as there are people who experience it.
Explaining that he was pleased and reassured by Frantic Assembly’s subtle approach to Mia’s voice, costume, physicality and entry into the play, Barker applauds how inspiringly receptive of the storyline younger audiences proved to be.
