Tangle delivers inspirational workshops in Crewkerne, Wellington and Burnham-On-Sea as part of their Dream Nation SW tour, a precursor to Word/Play Phase 3.
Tangle, an African-Caribbean touring theatre company, work across the South West - the UK’s largest and most rural region – and in London, its biggest urban centre. Inspired by Martin Luther King Jr’s speech ‘I have a dream’, (celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2013), Tangle's Dream Nation invites people from all walks of life to take part in their multi-platform arts project. Here they’ll envision and celebrate local, contemporary society from a wholly multi-racial perspective.
Tangle will be delivering workshops to communities in Somerset where participants will create original haikus inspired by Dr King’s vision for change. These will be displayed on a specially commissioned, travelling installation created by stage designer Colin Falconer, which will also tour venues across SW England.
Tangle will be presenting Haikus created by students of Court Fields Community School, Wellington. Their work will be displayed on a beautiful travelling exhibition at a free celebration event open to the general public at Wellington Arts Centre on Friday 4th April, 6pm-7.30pm. Find out more here.
Dream Nation is in collaboration with South West England’s Partnership for Multi Racial Theatre, a consortium of 20 arts organisations, including Take Art, in the South-West.
To follow on from the Dream Nation tour, in Summer 2014 Take Art will be running Word/Play Phase 3, a community theatre project to encourage public dialogue around key contemporary issues.
"I was lucky to observe the fantastic workshops which took place at Winnal and Stanmore Primary. Practitioners Msimisi and Dare provided a unique and thought provoking creative experience,which engaged the children from the moment they walked into the room."
