Luckiest of Me's, I get to work on the development of a piece of theatre for children with profound, multiple learning disabilities (pmld), with a wonderful and inspiring group of people - Ben Winger, Diane Thornton, Lucy McGreal, Kerry Cleland, Anna Newell and John Keilty. Thanks to Creative Scotland for the funding.
We spent 2 weekends meeting each other and sharing our collective experience of work in this area as well as finding themes, images, story ideas, music and props. It was so exciting to be in a room with skilled artists who are all passionate about what they do and about theatre and art being accessible to all.
The next phase of the development will take place at Mavisbank School where we will be for a 2 week residency, testing out ideas and making discoveries...watch this space!
I am a therapeutic clown and performer. Writing here is part of my wider practice and maybe some of my thoughts will trigger some thoughts of your own and I hope that helps.
