Into The Woods – A Shared Journey

We are crafting a brand new production with families; “Rosie Red Boots and Nightmare in the Forest”. Story making sessions have happened over Zoom and now we find ourselves with a fun story to tell. The next part of the process is designing and making the shadow puppets to use to tell this story. Join us for a 30-40minute Zoom session where will we show you drawing exercises to warm up the imagination and then design our own characters.

Capturing A Moment

We are creating a video projection on the Old Marks & Spencer building in Spring Gardens in Buxton with Illuminos (projection specialists extraordinaire). People have shared their memories which we are turning into drawings. Illuminos will then animate them and compose a piece that will excite and refresh our senses. Local children have also submitted drawings of the creatures they think might be lurking behind the old shop fronts. These illustrations will be weaved into the video too. Imagine if you saw your drawing fill a building!

We can’t wait to see the final projection. We will have a grand showing later in the year when Covid restrictions have eased and everyone is feeling a little bit more confident to gather together.

Thanks to all of those who were able to join in, you’re amazing.
Mark, Tara and Phil
