Helen Moulder is taking it to the street
Nelsonians are able to see a work in progress in a shopfront, as actor Helen Moulder rehearses her new solo play, The Bicycle & the Butcher's Daughter in an empty retail space. The Shopfront Theatre is billed as Nelson's newest - if temporary - performance space. It's a clever use of an unused building that's co-ordinated by a group called Make/Shift Spaces, which helps artists and community groups use the city's vacant retail spaces for a range of projects. Helen's previous plays include Playing Miss Havisham, Gloria's Handbag and Meeting Karpovsky. Helen Moulder talks to Lynn Freeman about The Bicycle and the Butcher's Daughter, co-written by Sue Rider.
