THEATRE AMONGST THE TREES
A HUGE SUCCESS!
Theatre Amongst The Trees was a summer arts project aimed at boys and girls in School Years 2-8 and previous members of Alias Theatre. It was a 5-day project that explored how art, poetry, stories, theatre, music and dance could be created using natural materials and settings within the local woods. It was open to anyone who was interested in using the outside world to explore different art forms - this was not a project just for performers, it was for everyone who wanted to have fun and use their imaginations!
The project took place at Alameda Middle School in Ampthill, Bedfordshire and the woods surrounding the school. Most of the activities were outside in the woods where participants gained inspiration from the natural environment.
Everyone had an amazing week going on sensory forest walks, writing poems, creating art pieces, making masks and costumes, and performing The Legend of the Wooden Shoes in the woods. This was truly a fantastic project where everyone grew in confidence, made new friends and smiled their way through the week!
