SCENE 11 Victoria Park

Saffron has done her shopping in Roman Road market and walks home through Victoria Park. Only Adults are playing in the playground
Children are in charge of themselves
When she leaves the park she emerges onto the canal towpath, oblivious to the cello playing angel sailing past her on a barge

In 2014 we received a movement and moving image commission from Chisenhale dance space for which we created a series of workshops and a public event called Learning to Play
This was very early on in the incarnation of this project and we might repeat the experiment now that we are so much further on in terms of crew, casting and.. umm.. everything.

We organised 2 Workshops (taking place in Chisenhale dance space and Victoria park) bringing adults and children together to explore how we play in our local environment with the children often taking the lead. We made videos which we secreted around the park on ipads on the days of the event
