Being 60, Mycelial and Me

“Mycelial was used to describe how sex worker activists talk and support each other, sharing information, identifying threats and building strengths … ancient communication systems like the Mycelium.”

Read a new blog by our Artistic Director and writer, Catrina McHugh MBE on turning 60 and co-creating and writing Mycelial.

“There is a huge responsibility writing in response, this isn’t for the faint hearted, it’s their stories and we are trusted to create, but it only works if we do it together and the groups feel in control, informed and involved, done with and not done to. Open Clasp are the scaffolding our co-creators are centre stage.”

Mycelial will be live at Northern Stage 20-28 October ’23. Directed by Associate Director, Laura Lindow, Mycelial has an international cast of 9 and will be filmed by our partners, Meerkat Films. Mycelial is in association with Northern Stage.
