As a follow up to the earlier Newsletter piece about Optik's history (June 2020) , the company is very pleased to be able to announce that archive footage of its very first production has just been posted on YouTube.  One Spectacle, first performed in 1981, launched a hectic programme of  five touring productions over the next four years. More details of Optik's early work can be found on the Unfinished Histories web-site  (https://www.unfinishedhistories.com/history/companies/optik/). To watch One Spectacle  enter Barry Edwards Optik One Spectacle in the YouTube search box. It was recorded on a very early piece of VHS equipment so we have done our best to enhance the original and hope that something of its 'provocative lunacy' (Time Out)  is still there forty years later! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr7GUrQFGkM&t=3s
