The international theatre company have announced a new video series that is set to launch on the 24th June.
Single Shoe Productions invite audiences to travel with their imaginations and to help take part in its new weekly video series Take Us There.
Using just household items, Single Shoe Productions will recreate locations that they love and miss, inviting audiences to make and share their own creations.
Do you yearn for the wind across your face on a carefree drive? Or settling in on a beach awash with shells? Perhaps the comfort of your favourite coffee shop is calling… Each week until mid-August, Single Shoe Productions will release a 3-minute video sharing a new place inspired by a specific theme – such as holiday, birthplace or road trip – along with insight into how they made their creation. The company are asking audiences to get inspired, look at their homes in a whole new way, and to take a photo or submit a video (3 mins max) which will be highlighted along with the weekly video release to create a digital scrapbook.
The company are also collaborating with venues including Cornerstone Arts Centre, St. George’s Theatre and Derby Theatre to reach local audiences, from families to students to arts groups.
This new series is created by Filipa Tomas, Bradley Wayne Smith, Christopher Howell and George Sienna. It is directed by Filipa Tomas and Bradley Wayne Smith.
Talking about the news, Filipa Tomas said: “We can’t wait to see where the series takes us and are even more excited to see the places the community members create themselves. It’s just a great bit of fun for all sorts of different folks to try their hands at; from families who’ve perhaps had to rearrange their summer holidays to makers and visual arts students keen to explore places that bring them joy.”
Single Shoe Productions is an international company founded by immigrants whose mission is to create theatrical experiences that challenge boundaries, explore the connections that hold us together and celebrate our common humanity, regardless of where we come from. Under co-artistic directors Filipa Tomas (Portugal) and Bradley Wayne Smith (USA), the company’s work combines visual storytelling, physical comedy and a love for the absurd to create and tour original theatre for universal audiences.
Those wishing to submit a photo or video (3 mins max), audiences should take a photo or a video of their fantastic creations with their mobile phones and send it via https://wetransfer.com to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Take Us There.
