A five day performance adventure for 10-11 year olds.

In August 2019, we worked with RSCPA Mallydams and a group of young people from the Hastings area to make a new woodland performance, created entirely by the group, with faciliation by a professional team led by Dens & Signals.

The project helped the young people build confidence, explore their creativity and imagination, and engage and connect with the natural world. A particular focus was allowing the group to uncover and develop personal specialisms and skills: including storytelling, composition, choreography and visual art and making.

The end of the project was marked by a performance and campfire celebration for the group, their families and friends.
