The Tide Traveller is a celebration of Cornish Culture, through the use of stories, songs and community engagement. The pop-up performance reflects memories, tales, and traditions that are prevalent in Cornwall and its people; past and present. The characters are from the old Kernow, excited to discover the new.
“We’ve travelled through the tides and time, the seconds and the sea, we, the old, here to see, new Kernow by the quay. We’ve carried the stories, trinkets and tales, and we hang them proudly upon our sails”
The three fisherwomen have travelled through time, from the bottom of Kernow to the top and shortly after arriving at their last stop, begin enthusiastically sharing what they’ve found along the way.
Haylie, in her boat, with a map in hand, she mans her sail, telling all the Tide Travellers’ mighty tale.
Issie on her rock and telescope to eye, she scopes out the new and fishes for stolen stories from her wicker basket below, weaving a yarn or two. As
Meva sorts through her finding from her travels across the seconds and the seas, she hangs them proudly upon her timeline for all to see.
The Tide Travellers was commissioned by Hall for Cornwall as a part of the Welcome Back Fund and was devised by ATOT and theatre-maker Emily Harrison. The Tide Travellers toured to Newquay, Mevagissey and Hayle.
Get born, eat sweets, BE QUIET, dance, dance, dance and repeat!
Set in a ruleless, dystopian future; The Blame Game explores the themes of power, conflict and resolution. This devised piece of work aims to ask the question: "What would the world be like without children?"
THE BLAME GAME was devised by Pick ’n’ Mix Theatre, in which Hannah and Florence were co-founders and collaborators alongside Alana Marshall, Ellen Foley, Bethany Hargrave, Sam Nancarrow and Olly Hudson-Wood.
As a collective, we wanted to devise a show that responds to the prevalent topics of climate change and the consequences of overpopulation. The Blame Game was performed at AMATA, Falmouth University in 2019.
