Taking Part

We love sharing the creative process with new people

as an integral part of our production process and in workshops, residencies and targetted participation projects. Every year we work with hundreds of people, young and old, some who call themselves artists and some who don't.

Our participation programme has the aim of being accessible to anyone wanting to engage. Our work ranges from one to one therapeutic work with some of the most at risk young people in the UK, to performance opportunities for young professionals, and everything in between.

 

We support the development of younger artists, providing worthwhile opportunities including internships, placements and volunteer positions working within our professional teams. We run a mentoring scheme for emerging theatre companies offering training, advice and practical support.

 

Have a look at the various strands of work we do:

 

>>Targeted projects

 

>>Residencies

 

>>Schools and Colleges

 

>>Dramatherapy

 

>>Talent Development

 

If you or any of the young people you work with would benefit from any of our strands of participation, please don't hesitate to get in touch - contact our Participation Manager Alex Ramsden with any questions.

How Tangled Feet are tackling anxiety in children

A report from the Children’s Commissioner at the end of last year found that there is an ‘epidemic of anxiety’ in young people. The number of children seeing psychiatrists has risen by a third, with the highest increase – 31% in a year – seen in those aged 9 and under. It’s a shocking rise. (Thanks to Flossie Waite from Children’s Theatre Reviews for digging out the statistic).   It was this sort of news that prompted us to make Butterflies, a Co-Production with Half Moon, that used anxiety in children as a starting point for a show for 3-8 year olds. We first started making the show in 2017 and did some test performances at Half Moon. This year we have developed the show and it’s touring until Nov 24th.  Alongside the tour we have launched a Mindfulness programme to run in four schools in 2019.
