work.txt

An initial task invites the audience to lay wooden blocks in any way they would like in the space, and these are then lit beautifully in sunrise tones by Danny Vavrečka to bring to life a city in miniature.
The Stage

Fires Our Shoes Have Made

The storytelling combines spoken word, sound, music and song, all performed under mesmerising coloured lights. The show looks and sounds beautiful.
Catherine Love, Ed Fest Mag 10/08/2019

Timpson: The Musical

The technical side of the show is very well realised, with exceptionally slick lighting.
