Phew what a week! Last week Miss Alys, Miss Katie and Miss Robyn were busy working with Matt Feerick, Karen Bell and Bev Fox creating funny, meaningful and surprising routines drawing on our research into the munitionettes.
Miss Patricia led two workshops one at Space Six and one at Headway Arts using theatre, movement and clowning to engage with archive material on the munitionettes.
This week we look forward to working with Matt again and our designer Kelly Jago and costume designer Rosie Bristow at The Customs House, South Shields.
On Saturday at The Customs House there is a creative workshop that will explore history and storytelling. We will look at historical sources like posters, statistics, articles and stories of the WW1 Munitionettes to ask questions like “Were we tougher back then?”, “Would we support the fight for Queen and Country now?” and make a bit of theatre all whilst drinking tea! https://www.facebook.com/events/845661872195731/
Last but not not least don't forget to pledge your support on Kickstarter. We still need to raise £350 in nine days to reach our target. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/655199758/the-munitionettes
Stiff upper lip!
