Intergenerational Workshops and Shows
We are delighted with our 6 week residency program at Sutton House. Caravan is arriving this week! The National Trust theme for the year is WOMEN and POWER so we hope to reflect this is all our work. By inviting participants to place women and girls at the heart of the narrative as well as working with women and girls of different ages.
The project is however open to everyone.
To sign up for the Make a Show with Your Grandparents please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
In Spring 2018 The Gypsy Caravan Theatre will come and live in the garden of this unique National Trust House in the heart of Hackney. Working in collaboration with community groups from around the borough, new and diverse Theatre companies will be formed and shows will be created.
The National Trust theme this year is : Women and Power. A theme we love very much. So in all our work on this project we will be inviting participants to be placing girls and women at the heart of their stories.
Watch this space!
The Gypsy Caravan Theatre arrived in the Lakes with no show to speak of.
The families of Kendal Calling took part in the workshops and made beautiful, funny and creative shows that they performed on the little wagon stage. Despite the rain and mud imaginations were brought to life and Mum, Dads, Grandparents, Children, Friends and Carers surprised them selves in performed their little shows to the public. Hooray for them!! What a lovely weekend.
We will be doing our first UK tour this summer. Inviting families to become theatre companies where they will take part in writing, creating and performing their own little shows on the wagon - all in the space of a day! Let the spontaneity begin!!
