Seagulls R&D Week 1

We are currently undertaking a period of research and development for our new show, When Seagulls Saved the World.

We recently spent a week exploring the theme of plastic pollution and our early ideas about the seagulls’ story. We asked the questions:

  • What does the end of the world look/sound/feel like (if caused by plastic pollution)?
  • Who are the seagulls?
  • How are they going to save the world?

Working on the beautiful Penryn Campus of Falmouth University and in the AMATA studios, we gathered the team together for the first time to play, explore, discover and document. We used various creative methods, including drawing, model-making, song, sounds, quick puppet-making, observation, poetry, improvisation, movement and, of course, puppetry.

Here’s a few of the things we got up to…
