Covid, Another moment of darkness... reflection and change
In response to the Covid-19 crisis, we considered how to creatively explore the emotional challenges we all now face. Using Zoom, we created a series of improvisations with the characters from Total Eclipse, Paco & Lily, exploring their experiences of social isolation. These improvisations revealed a clear resonance between grief associated with the challenge of navigating the current crisis & the grief for the loss of a loved one which we explored in Total Eclipse.
We put together a short video with extracts from one of the improvisations.
At the same time, Charlie has successfully provided creative workshops online to groups of participants in which her therapeutic work has helped people to traverse the ways the crisis is affecting people’s mental health.
We would like to draw on these two experiences, to create 6 short episodes about the challenges and opportunities of the current crisis, co-created with workshop participants with whom we will interact online to explore what might have arisen in response to the radically shifting nature of our everyday lives.
We are applying for Arts Council funding and will be looking for workshop participants in the near future. Please contact us using the form below for expression of interest.
More details coming soon...
