The Purple Ladies (2018-19)

Magic & Myth Cabaret (2018)

For this show I collaborated with The Purple Ladies, bringing together a 5-piece music band of part-human and part-forest creature, inhabiting the surreal in-between worlds of synth, baroque, props and pop… This was a family friendly show made for the local community in the heart of a residential estate in Peckham, with circus acts, storytelling and cabaret.

The music band was
Jan Lee (musical direction, synths, vocals, flute)
Roddy Skeaping (viola, vocals)
Tim Murray-Browne (drums, vocals)
Keith Thompson (saxophone, vocals)
Abigail Wollston (cello)

Flight of The Birds (2019) – Folkestone Puppet Festival

A trio of performers told the story of a little girl Sadako who promised to fold 1000 paper cranes for peace after the Hiroshima bombing. Children and their families joined in the interactive show to fold origami bird puppets and take the birds into flight along the coast of Folkestone.
