    DEVOTED AND DISGRUNTLED 7
    What are we going to do about theatre?
   
    “The annual Devoted and Disgruntled open space….keep the dates free; it’s the most energizing event in the theatre calendar.”
    Lyn Gardner, The Guardian



    This February will see the 7th Devoted and Disgruntled annual event.
    D&D was born out of an invitation I made back in January 2005 because I was frustrated with the theatre world I worked in not being all that great at communicating with itself. I wanted to improve that, to find new ways for us to connect to each other and bring about change.
  
    Now, 7 years on, in these times of economic scarcity it is more important to me than ever to maintain a space that is open for possibility and optimism, a space which engenders a depth of discussion and creativity other events don’t give. D&D is not just about debate, it’s about authentic conversations: a place where we can be surprised by as yet unimagined solutions, relationships and creative collaborations. D&D provides a genuine opportunity to follow impulses, find support, gain new insights, share knowledge, make things happen.
  
    I want to invite the people who have never been before, the people that come every year, the people that keep on meaning to come and never quite manage it, the people that came once and thought that was that, the people that have come to one of our D&D Satellite events and never been to the big annual one.
  
    Improbable will again open and hold the space for this event but it isn’t our event. D&D belongs to the people that turn up, to the community that has grown over the last 7 years and continues to grow.

    D&D is not designed for any particular sector of the theatre community, simply for those who choose to turn up. It’s your event, open to anyone. So this year I’m inviting you to make an invitation and to publish it here.
 
    Let me know, and let other people know:-
    Why you come to D&D?
    Why somebody else should come to D&D?
    Why D&D is important to you and important for theatre?
   
    Publish your invitation, and check back to read the invitations others have written:

    Open Space has been used successfully all over the world. It is an exciting open-ended event that enables a self-organising group to use its collective imagination to deal with complex issues and it will achieve this in an incredibly short space of time. By the end of the event the following will have occurred:
    Every issue of concern to anybody will have been raised, if they took responsibility for doing that. All issues will have received full discussion, to the extent desired. A full report of issues and discussions will be in the hands of all participants. And YOU will have taken part in making it happen.
