Rationale performed work in progress extracts from In My Shoes as part of the Crucible's Platforms series during the week-long National Theatre Connections festival. The extracts were performed in the Crucible foyer to the audiences attending that evening's NT Connection performances. The dance extracts displayed a strong sense of ensemble discipline and the definite potential to be developed into an exciting integrated performance piece. The audience was very appreciative of the work on the night. This bodes well for the premiere of the fully developed work on the Crucible stage this November as part of our 40th birthday celebrations, designed to shine a spotlight on Sheffield-based artists and communities.
