The Person behind the Profile

 

 

Theatre for Children.

Sam LOVES hiding, especially when it’s bath time. But what happens when adventurers play with the plug? Using puppetry, physical theatre, combined with British Sign Language, small things are made into large characters. Handprint Theatre ignite the imagination of all, as the magic from beneath the bath starts to bubble...

 

This piece was created for the Camden Fringe Festival 2010, as a show for Children aged 2-8.

It has been redeveloped and is currently touring as a project in Schools working in conjunction with a Visual Literacy and Creative Communication programme.

Soapy Sam

A Suburban Silent Movie

How many times a day do you check your facebook? Can you eat your breakfast without upsdating your status?

 

What is the impact of social media on young people? The stalker, the friend friend request, and that dreaded relationship status, can any of us now escape these labels!

 

A comic yet touching story of a girl who falls deeper and deeper into a virtual world, forgetting that sometimes social media will play games with us!

Love at first sight, escaping a jealous villain and running away into the moonlight is not the classic silent movie we are telling; and this story is definitely no picnic!

Will the jealous Baron get his evil way, will our heroine’s days be numbered, will our hero save the

day, or will ‘planned’ engineering works get in the way?

 

Our Characters have escaped from the confines of the cinema screen, and are free to run riot throughout the streets of the festival. As does Charlie Chaplin, hints of our current political frustration develops playfully throughout the surreal silent movie, we are able to laugh, to cry, and ultimately feel the blows of a new vibrant and current piece.
