FanSHEN produce theatre productions with the aim of giving participants something to experience, instead of something to consume. Encouraging people to participate, rather than observe.
Invisible Treasure was their digital-playground that was avaiable form the end of October until mid-November back in 2015 that – even after participating in – I couldn’t adequately explain to another, no matter how hard I tried. Fortunately, they have a video for that!
One of the department lecturers was asked by a collaberator of theirs at FanSHEN if any of his students would be interested in, or able to do some content for their Invisible Treasure show. I replied due haste to the email/request, and was apparently the first to reply. I’m quite sure that’s the only reason I got the work.
I quickly realised that in the time frame they were hoping for, it was going to be difficult – albeit doable – to get it all done. I could comfortably take care of two of the four pieces, so that’s what happened. Time management and delegation to the rescue! I got in touch with someone else who was very enthusiatic about working on the project, and just like that the workload was halved.
