Ahead of their debut show, LEGO Beach, we sat down with INKBLOC Ensemble to discover a little more about this year’s Made in Bristol troupe.
Here we caught up with Casey to find out all about his Bristol Old Vic theatre background.
Where have you studied and how did you become involved with Made in Bristol?
Having not really been involved with Bristol Old Vic or the Young Company for a long time, I found myself stumbling upon the Made In Bristol scheme post-graduation from theatre school. I trained in Musical Theatre at the London College of Music, I was looking for a way to fuse my musical skills and passion for creating fresh, new pieces of theatre and felt Made in Bristol was the perfect opportunity to do this.
What is this year for you?
This year for me has been about experimenting with a collective of 11 other different artists, all from different walks of life. Being able to learn and develop as a performer from working as a close-knit ensemble has made the whole experience of starting a company so much more enjoyable and intriguing.
Plans for the future?
Following this amazing year, I am looking to continue working as a Freelance Performer as well as continuing my journey as a profound up-and-coming theatre maker with the wonderful team at INKBLOC and Bristol Old Vic.
Tell us something interesting?
I have a super strange liking of Bonsai Tree’s and I am a keen guitarist.
