So we have become the finalists of another competition – yay! The Lion’s Den Challenge is a business programme which is supported by the King’s Graduate School. This year, artFix London entered and now we are due to take part in the final on the 24th February! As part of this we have to pitch the artFix London project to an audience – hopefully it will go well!
Outside the office Nadia and Jilke enjoyed an evening at the Superbolt Theatre at the Vaults by Waterloo station yesterday. The show was called ‘Uncanny Valley’ and as well as being invited to watch the performance they had a meeting with the cast regarding their potential participation in the artFix venture.
Jilke said that the play was really fun and definitely something she would recommend to others. It is set in the future and tells the story of a boy falling in love with his robot. She said she was literally under her chair laughing most of the time – especially when they did a robot dance together and played the future play-station 25. However, it had an interesting underlying message as well (don’t worry I’m not going to spoil it for you!) The three actors were incredible, both individually and together – they kept her on the edge of her seat for the full hour. So make sure you get down to see it too – the weekend is coming!
