Gather the family and go through your recycling bin and cupboards. LET’S CREATE!

Join the Orang Collectif on 2 fun adventures for learning about sound and storytelling. You will create your own instruments and puppets to make your own show at home.

1. Music Workshop (3rd April): Discover where sound comes from and how to make your own sound instrument using recycled items found around your house.

2. Puppet Workshop (4th April): Embark on a story-telling adventure and learn how to make your own puppets using recycled items found around your house!

Both workshops focus on the use of recycled and repurposed items, providing participants with tools to create their own performances. You can book for one or both workshops. It is recommended you try and do both.

You will receive further details of recycling and simple objects to collect in advance, as well as an online safety agreement to sign, with your booking confirmation

Recommended Age: for families with children, age 4+ (Children under 16yrs must be accompanied by an adult)
Duration: 45mins


The Orang Collectif

The Orang Collectif is a new cross-disciplinary, multicultural collective telling critical and engaging stories using Southeast Asian and Western theatrical forms. They recently created The Tree of Objects (bilingual children’s theatre about recycling, repurposing, and being mindful of the environment) supported by CAN. An Odyssey (ongoing project - inspired by Homer’s Odyssey, investigating identity and immigration against London’s zeitgeist) in residency and presented at Third Angel’s Mentoring Scheme ’17, Omnibus’ Engine Room ’18 and The Sane Asylum ’18. They also co-produced with Joly Licks two indie live art events in a Victorian house in Shepard’s Bush, The Sane Asylum (2018) and The Giving (Sept 2020, on Zoom)
