Cyril is preparing for this summer by meeting lots of interesting artists from a special effects man to a puppet making lady. We launched our kickstarter campagin to help Cyril MAKE some friends for the show. Take a look here and donate anything you can! He's so lonely!
The show journeys through puppetry, storytelling, theatre and clown. We were very excited to showcase excerpts of the script so far at Live@theLibrary, Oldham. Be sure to check out the gallery to see how it went.
Cathy spent the summer with clown master Phillipe Gaulier in order to add a little silly to the story. She will be skill sharing what she learnt with the famous clown tormentor at a ‘Le Jeu – Clown’ workshop in December. Please get in touch if you’d like to attend.
Arts Council England have supported Cathy Shiel and the Squirrel team in the research and development of a children’s play. The RnD process is a little over half way through and there have been some hilarious and genuinely moving moments explored already. A group of talented folk have squirreled away for hours to make this piece the best it can be. Professional actors, set designer, director, writer, script readers, musician, filmmaker and illustrator have all been on board.
