Heebie Jeebies

Workshop: Multilingual theatre for young people

11:30am – 1pm Wednesday 31st May

In this workshop Serena Doran and the rest of the ‘Heebie Jeebies’ team will explore the idea of using multiple languages to enhance physical theatre for young children, asking questions about understanding and connection. We will use play and words to explore making theatre for a young audience and how this can lead to a world beyond your immediate surroundings.

Sharing: HEEBIE JEEBIES 4pm Friday 9thJune

The Heebie Jeebies are tiny creatures who are always around you, you just never see them. With their insect puppet pals in tow, they journey through the seasons taking care of the nature we all depend on. But with the world changing, is there still room for the Heebie Jeebies?

Heebie Jeebies hopes to inspire connections: with nature, with the senses and connection to the people around us, using physical theatre, puppets, comedy and sensory stimuli. This is a work in progress sharing which opens up the world for the young audience using multilingual and sensory communication, breaking down barriers, or providing the tools to overcome them.

Children 7 and under and their carers welcome.

Serena Doran is a performer and theatre maker based in Glasgow. She trained at Jacques Lecoq International Theatre School in Paris, where she graduated in November 2020, and since then has been involved in creating innovative new works with the Tron theatre, the Gaiety theatre and Imaginate, amongst others. Particularly specialising in physical theatre, including clowning, character work and theatre for young audiences, her practices are based in devising, collaboration and exploration. Serena is also a creative practitioner and facilitates a variety of community and private workshops for all ages.

Sharing: It’s a Black Hole 4pm Friday 16th June

‘It’s A Black Hole’ is an invitation to members of the public to join us in developing a set of sounds that could speak to a black hole, and to perform them collectively at the end of the event in the singularity – a completely dark room.

We are interested in what happens when you invite a group of strangers to come together to make sound; we enjoy the awkward energy that comes with the unknown. How do you communicate with an entity that converses differently from us? We can’t know what will happen, it’s a black hole!

Come join us in the Singularity on Friday 16th June

*Our first attempt at communicating with a black hole was made in October 2022 at Eastside Projects in Birmingham.
