WORKING WITH THE COMMUNITY
2020 Educational Outreach Project
Throughout the 2020 online festival, care home residents in Beverley will be taking part in a remotely created pilot project by Hull-based Anglo-Indonesian puppet company Indigo Moon Theatre. Thanks to the dedication of care home workers Elaine at Figham House, Jimmy & Amber at New House, and Tracey & Emma at Beverley Grange, residents are having a go at shadow theatre using pre-prepared kits, a video tutorial and messages from outside.
If you have friends or relatives living in New House, Figham House or Beverley Grange, we’d love to hear from you (especially if you Skype/Zoom)! More places may also join the fun and we’re looking forward to seeing video clips of everyone’s shadow theatre work, whether that’s a simple dance cast onto the wall, a singing puppet, or a story of choice to share with family and friends outside!

Beverley Puppet Festival has a long history of educational outreach projects. In the early days we worked with three artists in three different local schools, resulting in a collaborative showcase and / or town procession before the start of the festival. Since then we have also worked with adult service users at Miller’s Day Centre – producing a shadow theatre installation at Beverley Minster (2014) and a big plastazote “Dinodragonaurus” to interact with festival goers in the Friary Gardens (2018). In 2016 residents and family members of the Old Schoolhouse Care Home produced a shadow film which was shown during the festival.
