A New Children’s Theatre Company Based in Stroud, UK
Lucy is committed to making art for everyone. Can You See Me? was described by peers as European and “Art on Stage” and with the founding of Aurora she intends to bring theatre of the highest quality to international festivals, The National Theatre and most importantly right into her local community. Collaborating with local, national and international artists – the work of Aurora will draw strongly on the experimental background of it’s collaborators and the visual language of Can You See Me? and Kin.
The company’s work will range from lightweight touring pieces with community sessions to installations, audio pieces and large scale immersive performances. Fit for the stage as well as unusual spaces. Work will be made through research, improvisation and play. And inspired by the work in Reggio Emilia and Lucy’s passion for child-led learning developed through School Without Walls, Aurora will place children and families at the heart of it’s process and product – making & performing alongside them in performances that spill out into participatory experiences.
Aurora will also be looking for a home in 2021 and is in conversation with local musical story telling company Playcircle and Filskit children’s theatre company – about setting up a hub for children’s theatre and performance in Stroud or the surrounding area – complete with rehearsal, performance and storage space.
