THE GREAT AND THE GRAND
(in development for Autumn 2019)
The Great and the Grand is a new participatory performance project inspired by our ‘grandad cabaret’ Rendezvous in Bratislava.
We’ll work with participants who identify as 1st-, 2nd- and 3rd-generation migrants to create many more time-travelling music theatre performances, this time featuring stories of participants’ own grandparents, performed by the participants themselves.
Thanks to seed funding from Farnham Maltings’ New Popular, we'll be developing this idea in 2019 in partnership with South Street Arts in Reading and local community centres.
By the end of this commission we’ll have a toolkit of musical and storytelling devices, a Great and the Grand framework that we will be able to tour all over the South East and the UK.
More updates to come!
