My first trip to this years Norfolk and Norwich Festival was to see Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring. A seven hour production about life, death and the passing of time.
As you can see I wasn’t going to ease myself into the festival slowly- I was going in headfirst with no idea what I was about to see. It’s so rare for me to go and see a production where I know nothing about what is going to happen, and that is what made me so excited for the day.
Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring. was created by Quarantine, who formed in 1998. They devise original theatre, performance and public events with and about the people in it. An incarnation of this show has been performed before, but as they use people from the local area and the stories they bring- no show is ever the same.
Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring. consisted of three live performances and one film. And that is all I knew going in.
