David Lane, writer, Engine House associate artist
The Engine House is where the seed ideas for our performances and events get researched and developed, creating that crucial space and time for new ideas to take flight.
It gives a distinct identity to the process-focused research that we undertake when developing a piece and is also a means by which we can share more widely the inspirations and processes that go into that research.
The type of collaborative, multi-disciplinary site-specific work that we do requires a constant evolution of approach specific to each project. The Engine House helps us by creating a focused place for recording and reflecting on our practice that in turn informs and evolves our approach to making work.
We hope that some of it might be useful and inspiring to others too.
