Residencies

Tangled Feet have taken up artistic residency in schools, colleges, town halls, museums, local parks and libraries...

Our residencies have lasted anything from a day to four months. We work with partners and participants to create the production and process they imagine in the place where they live, work or play.

 

Get in touch to discuss how we can come and be in-residence with you. 

What it's like to have us in residence

“It's been an incredible week in so many ways and we have been reminded again that the only constant in life is change. Sometimes, changes can seem threatening and destabilising, but they can also be incredibly moving and liberating. Art can be a tremendous challenge and consolation and I found all of the performances of All That Is Solid gave me lots to think about. Most importantly, they made me feel something profound and true. ”- Jon Nicholls, Head of Arts College, Thomas Tallis School -
“I really didn't want this week to end. I personally think I learned much more than could have been anticipated and only wish this had happened sooner in Tallis. It was challenging and hard work the whole week but really rewarding. I think everyone involved would agree it was a great thing to happen in the school and should create a window for more people to want to do similar things”- Student, Year 13 -

It's official: Tangled Feet is Fantastic for Families!

By Kat Joyce   We are very honoured to have been recognised with a prize for Best Family-Friendly Workplace Initiative' by the Fantastic for Families campaign.   Over the years the number of people in the ensemble with kids has grown to the point that there are now more children than adults in the TF tribe. So really, we had to adapt our working lives or we would just not have been able to carry on making work. The upshot of that is that, motivated by our long-standing commitments to working together, we've found loads of creative ways to accommodate people's parenting status.   The theatre industry can be horribly unfriendly towards parents and parents-to-be. I know of women who work at major buildings who privately report a culture where taking time out for motherhood marks you clearly as someone with no desire to succeed. I know actors who have been dropped by their agents during maternity leave because 'it doesn't seem like you want to return to work after your baby'. Others who've had to desperately scrabble around for childcare when production schedules are changed at the last minute. In an industry where there are always more creatives than there are jobs, and people often feel very precarious and disposable, many try to behave as if they don't have children, hiding their families out of sight. This is a real shame, as it means that talent and experience haemorrhage out of our industry as people (mainly women) find family lives incompatible with continuing to work.
