Swallow's Wings

I am creating a puppet show to tour into schools in order to educate and nourish children's strong need for traditional stories.

We did it!

On 22nd Dec 2016 we successfully raised £685 with 19 supporters in 14 days

I am creating my own puppet show company: Swallow's Wings. I chose the name for its migratory element, as swallows travel to and from Europe all the way to South Africa - wishing to encompass inclusivity for all geographical and cultural origins.

I deeply believe in the healing and formative power of ancient tales and archetypal narratives. I have chosen the Frog Prince as my first production for its cathartic power. The characters are from a village in Africa, in order to broaden the cultural representation in schools and to re-connect children with their lost cultural identities.

This show will require the total sum of £1,500.

The money will contribute to;

  • The mentoring and expertise  of a proffessional puppeteer to aid in the process of my production.
  • A film maker to film the show for the website.
  • A website designer to create my webpage.
  • Business cards.
  • A course on lighting in puppetry so I can improve the set and create a fabulous atmosphere in schools.
