Round and Round the Gardens: Can the RHS engage children with relevant environmental issues through immersive, promenade theatre?
Drayton, T. 2016. Round and Round the Gardens: Can the RHS engage children with relevant environmental issues through immersive, promenade theatre? ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering 2016: On The Edge. University of Birmingham, UK 02 - 09 Jul 2016 ASSITEJ International.
Pregnant Fish Theatre had been asked to create an immersive performance that reinvigorated the local folklore of the surrounding county of Devon for 21st century children by the Royal Horticultural Society. This led to a supportive, creative relationship with RHS Rosemoor that has included a series of immersive, ambulatory, outdoor performances over the last four years. With this paper, I intend to briefly examine these performances, the practical methodology used to create such pieces, and whether the RHS feel that such pieces are successful in their attempts to engage children with relevant thematics.
