‘It is fascinating to see how with the right skills, companies can tap right into people's lives and capture tiny moments of emotion. There is no distance in this kind of work and no safety nets. Ragroof Theatre's ‘The Button Museum’ is exactly what it says it is – an installation that displays an array of buttons donated by members of the public. But in this case, every button tells a story. You choose a numbered button, locate the related envelope and find out who donated it and perhaps the story behind it. If you want to, you can give your own button or choose one from a selection to add to the museum. Again, it is a very simple idea beautifully executed. Company members wear 1940s clothes and an actor types up the newly donated stories on an old manual typewriter.’
