Sea Odyssey was an extraordinary event, all the more poignant because the show didn’t just happen in the centre of Liverpool but extended its reach into the narrow streets of north Liverpool, squashed between the two football stadia. The show was entirely free and it went to the people and didn’t just expect people to come to them. And they came in their thousands: families, kids in buggies, granddads with zimmer frames and dogs of every size and shape who responded nosily to the appearance of the playful 9ft tall steel and papier-mache canine called Xolo. Theatre probably needs to remember that when it moans about the difficulty of attracting audiences.
