Sumfing

Sumfing’s inside

And

Sumfing won’t get up

And

Something’s outside

And

Sumfings Up!

 Theatre maker Dominic Biddle and visual artists, Jacquie Campbell and Heidi McEvoy-Swift, are collaborating with children’s imaginations to create a theatre piece that speaks directly from the child.

We have designed and built a portable immersive space that children are invited into, to discover Sumfing. Sumfing is inside a big box that will not open.

Over the course of 50 minutes, the children discover and express what Sumfing might be, using word, sound, and making.  Together we uncover Sumfing, personify Sumfing and empower Sumfing: A large-scale puppet. Finally, they send Sumfing on its way, through the door, altered by their responses, into the world.

Through this process the children will help us create a piece of theatre for Bury St Edmunds’ Once Upon a Festival.
