We are incredibly grateful to Arts Council England for enabling us to continue our work over the next six months with funding from The National Lottery.
This is crucial timing for us as we can now keep our projects alive so that in 2021 we are ready to roll!
We will be creating and sharing some digital content over the coming months. A DIY interactive sound journey to the sea and the woods, which may be comforting for those people who have mobility issues or otherwise remain house-bound over the next few months. Some animated snippets of the history of an extraordinary tribe who live with the birds, setting the scene for our forthcoming show ‘Whistlers’. Plus there will be more guest appearances from our lovely friend, Ms Sars-CoV-2…
That said, we look forward to a successful easing of lockdown and seeing you on a street, by the beach or in a woodland near you in the not too distant future, when we can do what we do best – bringing people together for fun, shared experiences. Here’s the that!
As countless arts organisations across the country, we are having to suspend regular activity for the foreseeable. We will be making some contributions to the creative pot over the next few months – in the hope of provoking laughter and creativity within homes in Devon and across the UK. Have a look at our short films in which we get to know Sars-CoV-2 a little better and watch this space for some interactive, sensory journeys in the countryside…
To the Green Carpet commissioners, The Somerset Wildlife Trust, North Devon Coasts AONBs and The Burton Art Gallery Bideford – we look forward to working with you in the not to distant future.
To our friends, family and fellow artists – stay safe and see you bolder and brighter on the other side!
We are delighted to have be the recipients of the 2020 Green Carpet Commission, supporting outdoor performance for green spaces. Our upcoming project The Whistlers / Les Siffleurs will be developed with the four project partners: Activate in Dorset, Le Citron Jaune in Bouches-du-Rhône (France), Cirque Jules Verne in Amiens (France) and Chassepierre Festival (Belgium).
We are very grateful to Kate Wood and Bill Gee for their support in our application and are really looking forward to working with them.
We are looking forward to working with North Devon AONB later this year.
We will be celebrating the unique landscape of the Taw/Torridge Estuary: the monumental movement of the rocks over vast time; the migratory journeys of wading birds who winter here; the passage of people’s feet who have lived and worked on the mouth of the river.
More details to follow soon…
