Asha and the Troll
Asha and the Troll is a funny, friendly, modern folk tale for 7-11 year olds. It is a theatre for young audiences production, with elements of storytelling, music and puppetry. We are swapping technical requirements for good old imagination, and as such, Asha and the Troll can be performed anywhere, in a COVID safe way.
Asha + The Troll centres around the themes of empathy, agency and friendship. It is based on the traditional Norwegian folk story ‘The Boy Who Had An Eating Match With a Troll’, and can be linked to KS2-3 humanities and PSHE curriculums.

Building Utopia is a public installation that first took place at Harlow’s Eastgate Gallery on 29th February (2020).
Participants learnt about concepts of Utopia through time and around the world. They designed posters for an imagined civilisation, added their ideas to the Wall Of Change and made buildings, gardens and more to add to the central ‘Future City’ installation.
They came to make, came to talk, came to watch and came to think about the past and the future.
Poetry intertwined with forms in nature. Hands reached. Oil dripped.
The SIDES exhibition documented an ongoing exploration in natural sculpture and repetitive process. It considered the intersection between organically occurring realities and human intention.
