“We met Carolina at the Edinburgh Fringe, having a glass of wine with common friends at the Traverse after watching her performing in The Secret Agent, a show co-produced by the Young Vic and theatre O. It was a joy seeing her move effortlessly and precisely across the stage. We’re very excited to talk to her about the balancing act of leading a devising process and re-finding ourselves through the act of making.”
