Magic Me is the UK’s leading intergenerational arts charity, they work to bring together primary school children with older people living in care settings and the community to work with professional artists on creative projects. We're excited to begin working with residents and staff at St. Fillans Care Home in Colchester.
Our ambition is to create a new piece of dance theatre using New Adventures’ creative devices, to be performed at St. Fillans in October 2020. The performance will be created with the residents as co-collaborators; we are currently spending time with residents in St. Fillans and running workshops, to capture some of their stories and tales for the creation of the devised performance piece; which will integrate the residents with company of 8 Romeo and Juliet local cast members who will be working with Choreographer, Arielle Smith.
