In partnership with Funky Llama, Extraordinary Bodies held a 4 day Creative Exploration residency at Theatre Royal Plymouth, 18th – 21st April 2017.
Participants came from two local community programmes associated with Theatre Royal Plymouth, Funky Llama and Our Space. Funky Llama creates innovative events and provides creative support for adults with disabilities, and Our Space is a theatre programme for adults who have faced challenges involving homelessness, mental health issues, substance misuse or re-offending, or other forms of exclusion.
Extraordinary Bodies artists Karina Jones, David Ellington and writer Hattie Naylor worked with the participants to share ideas and experiment with aerial circus skills, drama games and writing workshops, exploring the question ‘What am I Worth?’.
The two groups worked together brilliantly and we came away with some lovely ideas surrounding the question of human value.
Thanks to our wonderful photographer Dom Moore, we also have some beautiful and moving photos of the residency. See a selection in the gallery below.
