The Boy in the Fountain...
..is a music/theatre/film/puppetry project with over 50 arts practitioners from the SW. This epic project will be filmed inside a Big Top in Cornwall resulting in 3 days of live gigs by the 32 piece PSF Gypsy Orchestra in May/June 2021
- Similar to our last project Res Publica the recordings and footage from within the Big Top will be turned into the Virtual Orchestra and toured internationally by Ben and Zaid.
- The performances, filming and subsequent tour can all be produced within social distancing guidelines and will provide much work for many within the arts community.
- The People's String Foundation prides itself on being a highly skilled grass roots project that is powered by community spirit and serious graft. We believe in giving back to the community and will have a series of workshops in 2021.
- Join this unique community and help us create something big and beautiful from the ground up!
- What is it About? The Boy in the Fountain is a beautiful story of a hidden soul who lives inside a fountain and sees the outside world through little cracks in the marble. Around him are street performers of all shapes and sizes trying to scrape a living. This fable looks at the need for creativity and the importance of art in our society.
- The money raised by this crowdfunder will be put towards the costs of rehearsing such a large project. You can make this possible!
