Merseyside Schools Autumn/Winter Tour 2013

Travelled Companions produces magical, innovative and interactive theatre for young audiences and we’d love to bring our latest show, Remember Remember, to your school as part of our Autumn/Winter Tour 2013. Remember Remember toured earlier this year to North West venues including Unity Theatre, Liverpool and The Lowry, Salford. The show was received with great enthusiasm, enchanted small faces and impressed parents. This magical experience for 4-7 year olds combines original animation, music and play in the safe, cosy environment of the Travelled Companions' space. We are now bringing this magical experience for 4-7 year olds directly to the children in their own environment. The show combines original animation, music and play which sits well with the Key Stage 1 national curriculum for literacy and P.S.H.E and will give you and your class plenty of inspiration for creative learning.

"Such a lovely, intimate time for the children" "Good for little ones, good for me, good for everyone!"

About Remember Remember... A Red Hood, A Glass Slipper, Two Little Elves & A Big Bad Wolf... In a World of forbidden stories and forgotten fairy tales, can you help put the pieces back together and perhaps discover a story of your own? The Show Remember Remember takes place in its own theatre tent, which suits up to 60 children per performance. Our theatre tent will be constructed in your school hall, or other suitable indoor space, creating an intimate and magical experience for each child. Whether we are performing in a fully equipped theatre or school hall, Travelled Companions strive to create theatrical environments for children to explore and engage with. When we visit your school with Remember Remember to your school we will be bringing with us our own lighting and sound systems to ensure work of the highest quality. The show lasts 50 minutes and can be performed twice in one morning with the addition of 2x 55minute Drama based workshops in the afternoon to compliment the show.

What People Said... "Remember Remember is a thought provoking piece of theatre which stimulates the imagination of KS1 children. It has current links with the English National Curriculum and Literacy framework from the national strategies. It will support creative writing, speak and listening opportunities and role-play based on the current KS1 objectives of Traditional Tales. This style of theatre engages children to ask and respond to questions. It allows peer learning and recognition or oral storytelling to be enhanced. It is another medium with which to support children's learning and provide them with rich vocabulary and storytelling skills with which to inspire them as writers." Helen Jones, Head Teacher.

About The Company... Leila Chebbi Leila has worked as a performer and facilitator on numerous children’s theatre projects with FUSE New Theatre for Young People and Merseyside Dance Initiative. On two of these projects, ‘Little Acorns’ for FUSE and ‘Minibeasts’ for MDI, the main focus was to encourage interaction and creative input by the children participating. She has worked nationally & internationally as a performer and facilitator with children who are learning English as a second language and/or children with speech and language difficulties. Working on these projects has enabled her to develop alternative skills to communicate with children in a theatrical environment. These skills along with Leila's skills in Physical Theatre, Movement and Dance have aided her accessibility to work with children across a broad spectrum of abilities and backgrounds.

Emma Hirons Emma has been employed on numerous children’s theatre projects for local and national organisations such as Tell Tale Hearts, Hope St Ltd, FUSE New Theatre For Young People, National Museums Liverpool and Unity Theatre. Emma was part of the team that delivered National Museum Liverpool and Find Your Talent’s extensive Merseyside schools tour, 'Ancient Egyptian Adventure' in 2009/10. A lot of the theatre she has worked on has been interactive and all of the work Emma has done for children has been devised. Working in this way has given Emma considerable skills and experience in this area. She is trained in Clown and has spent considerable time developing her skills in this area with such practitioners as Philippe Gaulier and Peta Lily. The main focus of clown is on truthfulness and honesty in performance, which Emma believes play an integral role in creating work for children.
