Following a fantastic summer working on a FreshLinc haulage truck for Transported Art we are back in Kent and preparing a performance at the other end of the scale spectrum! Beached is the first piece we are making as a part of our Pubbetry project, aiming to bring theatre to a tiny tabletop near you.
The venues are listed on our tour dates page and we are delighted to be able to offer the performances free, though why not stop and have a cuppa or a lemonade whilst you wait!
The development of this work has been a great opportunity for Strangeface and we are so pleased to have a flexible piece we can offer all year round to promoters featuring 2 puppeteers, a small bag of tricks and headphones to keep the work self-contained. This has been made possible by the support of three fantastic funders – Ideas Test, Kent County Council and Tonbridge and Malling Community Enhancement Fund.
The first dates are part of the Family Arts Festival, a national campaign to offer quality accessible arts to everyone. There are events happening across the UK now until the 2nd November and they are keen to get you feedback on work you have seen. You’ll be able to rate our little run in their survey.
We’d like to see the idea build with workshop activities and new stories, if you’d like to book the project or discuss an idea do drop us an email. We’re particularly looking for partners in Tonbridge and Malling in the next phase, but all conversations are welcome!
