Projects > Transition Tales
Following on from the workshops and shows of the previous year in association with Transition Buxton we began a new project together to address the issues of climate change, sustainability and the use of resources. The project involved the devision of a piece of shadow theatre by Doug Agnew and accompanying music played by musicians Laurie and Liam with instruments they built out of junk and rubbish. It centred around an old Japanese tale about a boy called Urashima-Taró. The piece was performed at the Buxton Puppet Festival 2011 by two local school students who carried out their work experience placements with Funny Wonders. Our Youth Group also performed their own Transition Tale and Nori Sawa, who joined us for the evening, performed some short pieces of his own creation.
