Well, it would seem that in all of this hot weather we have been experiencing, I have forgotten to update you all! Since completing our workshop series at Southway Library we have fully realised the final show, A Tissue, A Tissue! With a beautiful set courtesy of Chloe Benbow, and some entrancing new music and songs, composed by Daisy Higman.
The show has toured around libraries in Plymouth and Exeter, with a few still to go in Tavistock, Mortonhampstead and Princetown. It’s been going down really well, with some lovely feedback from our audiences. It has been made even more clear to us how important it is to provide work like this for young audiences and that by placing shows in non-traditional spaces, we can engage with a much wider and more diverse audience. Exciting discoveries, as we will soon be announcing more projects with Plymouth Libraries, so check back soon for more details.
As well as our Libraries tour, A Tissue, A Tissue! is soon heading off to the bright lights of the big city for 6 performances at Wild Child Festival in Dulwich, London. From the 17th-19th August there’s a fun packed programme of events, activities and shows to delight all the family, including our new show at 1pm and 2pm everyday.
Then we will head back down to the Southwest for some performances of A Tissue, A Tissue! at Tacchi Morris Arts Centre’s open day! We had a great time performing there last year and are also looking forward to bringing The Elves & The Shoemaker to the space next February. So if you fancy a trip up to Taunton, take a look at what they have to offer for the FREE open day on the 16th September.
Creating A Tissue, A Tissue! has been a challenge but a truly rewarding process. Artistically it has pushed us further as a company and has increased our desire to create more innovative and accessible work for young audiences. Having the privilege to work with 2-4 year olds to create the show was a great experience and it’s been so nice to get to know many of our participates and audiences even better over the a last few months.
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported our journey so far, and we hope to meet even more of you over our next shows and projects.
