Footprints Theatre Company

Footprints Theatre Company


Art Forms: A site specific Theatre Company working in an interdisciplinary form which combines all art forms in ways that engage the audience and participants to interact with the place in which they are either watching the performance or participating in the workshop.

Summary: Our motto – ‘Any Place is a Stage’

Our aim is to engage in the issue of environment, place and identity using the medium of theatre to find ways to articulate and animate the space.

Our work concentrates on developing an awareness of what is around us and our reaction to it and one another.

What do we do: We provided performances in chosen spaces on commission, and we provide interdisciplinary arts workshops for the community in a chosen space, these workshops can be single days exploring the space or can build over a period of time to a performance in that space with the community.

Our work has included: A bar in Chelmsford, several churchyards and churches, schools spaces, the centre of Colchester, Slack Space shop window and a library.

Locations: Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Camridgeshire.

Qualifications: The artistic director of the company has a Bachelor of Education Honours and a Master of Arts in Applied Theatre. All company members have enhanced CRB checks and the company has liability insurance.

Projects:

‘Have You got What I am Looking For?’ A performance at the Ancient Lights in Chelmsford. An interactive performance where the audience were never quite sure whether they were meant to be watching or participating.

Noak Hill – A workshop with Essex Wildlife Trust and families living in Havering. The families explored the wildlife site of Noak Hill and created personal responses to it.

All Saints Church. Little Cornard. Sudbury – A workshop for year Eleven drama students who explored the church and churchyard and produced promenade drama performances using the natural environment.

‘Window Shopping’ – Slack Space, Colchester. A performance project which sought to get passers by to stop and watch and then enter the premises.
