Over the last few months we have been working with Co3 Dance and the poet Louise Fazackerley, sharing ideas and using the garden space for more creative endeavours. As the garden is having a Alice in Wonderland theme, due to the tale being 150 years old this year, this was the theme that Sarah and Louise worked on with some local school children.
This poetry is by Year 3 Palacefields Academy
The children worked with poet Louise Fazackerley to explore the nonsense language of the ‘Jabberwocky’ and unusual similes to describe characters in Alice In Wonderland. This poetry was then used to create two pieces of dance with professional dance company C03 and performed at The Brindley (July 2015)
The poetry will be on display in the ‘Old Town Bloom’ garden on 25th August (maybe sooner).

You will be able to see the performance on film soon!
Also Sarah and Louise will be performing ‘The Woman Who Turned into an Eyeball’ in the garden on the 18th August at 1pm, it is a sight to behold and hear!
