We've finally unpacked the car from our incredible week in Manchester at Contact, working at Contacting the World 2012 - an international youth theatre festival.  It was incredible, and our brains have been stretched beyond all recognition - though workshops and performances and discussions and visiting companies.  All of this now needs to be filtered and our brains reformatted so that we can coherently create a report of everything that happened.

However, in the meantime, I'm slowly siphoning off images from the week.  I wanted to capture movement and energy from the festival, and feel like this first set does a reasonably adequate job.  It was a workshop run by Wordsmiths - a participating company from Trinidad and Tobago - and they got everybody moving with sticks.

(There's a lot more to come, but this will be a slow and steady process!)
