All Midnight Run facilitators are multi-skilled, enterprising, overqua-life-fied individuals and Imogen Butler Cole is incredible. Over lunch, we caught up on her recent escapades.
MNR: Imo, what have you been up to?
IMOGEN: "Since the Epic Midnight Run in summer 2015 I’ve been developing my first solo show, a testimonial account of healing and forgiveness following sexual assault. Foreign Body aims to destigmatise dialogue around sexual violence and will be at the RADA and Off Beat Festivals in June 2016.
In May I’m directing The House of Bilquis Bibi - a Pakistan-set adaptation of Lorca’s classic The House of Bernarda Alba - with Mulberry School’s Alumni Theatre Company, which works to empower the local community through drama and finally, I’m working at RADA in Business as a trainer in communication skills and creativity for innovation where clients have included Chanel, Google, Sony and the BBC. I am an assessor for the RADA Awards and a tutor on the RADA summer schools in devising and Shakespearean text!
MNR: Where can we find out more?
MNR: Thank you!
