Flying The Nest

Design Statement

The work of Handmade Theatre is founded on the idea of creating interactive experiences and spaces, which embrace a family audience as participants rather than observers. For Flying The Nest the theme of Birds was established from a desire to engage children in their environment and create theatre suitable for a range of outdoor settings including nature reserves. Therefore the piece was devised from the initial visual image of the audience sat in giant nests. As Creative Director of the company, the design was integral to every stage of the collaborative devising process. We started with a mix of objects, bird facts and poems to create a complex tapestry of abstract vignettes, combining physical theatre, puppetry, story telling and music. All HandMade Theatre sets are designed and built in collaboration with Ben Thomas a skilled yurt builder. They combine natural materials and consider environmentally friendly processes. They are designed to be touched and complement outdoor settings. The performance should trigger the imagination and bring stories to life with colourful characters, transforming objects and songs.
