Seeing Red (a tribal theatre-making project)

written by Toksvig

NB: this isn't a Larder project. See below for the appropriate contact info.

January 2014

A collective of creative artists are informally gathering into a tribe to create a new site-specific piece of live performance.

Inspired by the moment that Little Red Riding Hood and The Wolf meet, this physical, musical work will take place in Nunhead Cemetery.

It is being collectively created using open space technology, a process through which a large group of people can self-organise around a primary collective goal.

We are a group of playful, collaborative performers, designers, directors, photographers, knitters, singers, musicians, stage managers, writers, composers, film-makers, sculptors, painters, puppeteers, imaginers, inventors.

Currently, we meet one Sunday a month, and at other times we talk through ideas in a Facebook group. Participants don't have to show up every time: just when they can, and they want to.

You might consider participating if you're an inherently collaborative artist, and you're interested in one or more of the following:

- collective / tribal theatre-making
- making work in open space
- site-specific theatre
- physical theatre
- telling stories with music and song
- how fund-raising for a collective project can work
- Red Riding Hood or The Wolf
- improvisation
- outdoor theatrical design
- puppetry, esp. shadow
- projection / film used in live theatre
- crafting
- being a performer in this, but you have no time to engage with a theatre project right now
- something else which is personal to you that we haven't thought of putting on this list

To find out more about getting involved, contact Jenifer Toksvig and Alan Sharpington via redandthewolf (at) hotmail (dot) co (dot) uk

NB: although the performances will take place in London, you don't have to be in London - or even in England - to engage with this project.
