Well, we’re off – one day of planning and walkabout on the site yesterday, and then we’ve been at Wetherby Day Centre who have kindly let us take over their workshop space and use their fabulous pedal rickshaw, now affectionately known as the CPV (Clown Powered Vehicle). The team have all met now as Andy Pilbeam-Brown, our theatre designer joined me, Jen Sumner, Matt Marks (musician/composer), Catherine Boot (circus/theatre artist), Holly Jones (dance/theatre performer, Ian Pringle (clown/theatre practitioner) and our great support team Nikki Disney, Stephanie Prowting and Emma Dempsey (theatre practitioners).
The tyres were pumped up and after a morning of play and creative ideas generation we had lunch outside followed by CPV experimentation and acro-balance….
The design team are looking for bits of bikes to make music and contemplating how we transform the CPV into a performance vehicle! Watch this space!
