If you were to establish your own venue, what would you call it?
The Stepping Stone
… and what would that venue specialise in? Dance, live music, theatre…?
Anything for emerging creatives - Directors, writers, actors, students and their grad projects… anyone who needs an opportunity to get a foot in the door.
What qualities should a 'great performance space' have?
I think character and flexibility- the ability for a space to host an array of acts and their audience, but also maintain its individuality and be able to feel how that manifests with each transformation.
