Throughout July & August 2015, we collaborated with a rich pool of artists to research and develop the concepts and ideas that will form the foundations of this, our second mid-scale production.
This process culminated in 4 days of showings in Newbury and at Lytham Festival of Stories, enabling us to road test our ideas at a prototype stage, in front of live public audiences before creating the full version of this show in 2017.
This project was funded by Arts Council England and research and developed at 101’s Outdoor Arts Creation Space.
