Design Statement

My challenge for Uprooted was to create a travelling garden with and for children that could brighten up Glasgow’s concrete playgrounds; fusing live performance with living plants. The project involved working with four Glasgow primary schools to design, grow and build a sustainable portable stage –creating a set of reclaimed timber pallets and furniture items (sourced from charity shops) and planting out quirky containers with basil, parsley, tomatoes and carrots. Told through music, movement and multi-sensory storytelling, the performance element of Uprooted connected audiences with nature through the view of the wider planet as home. The story followed three characters (Plum, Lily and Basil) singing to the salads, flowers and herbs amongst their curious home of plants. Part theatre show, part community garden and part installation, audiences of all ages were also invited to ‘nibble’ at the set and costumes. The show toured to various outdoor venues and schools across Glasgow, before finding its way back to one of the schools that helped plant it. Here, the set was replanted and reconstructed with the help of the kids as a permanent feature in the children’s playground – turning an ugly metal fence into a beautiful space for future gardening and storytelling.
