The fourth iteration of our Kitchen Circus Project in Bristol has come to an end successfully. Perhaps not in the way that we envisaged at the start of the year, but the artists and families found a way to make some incredibly beautiful and thought-provoking work that transcended the difficulties everyone has faced over the summer.
Three families, three organisations, three artists and three producers worked tirelessly over the summer months to connect online and in some cases in parks and outside spaces.
Using the Home as a starting point the point three artists explored with their families what Home meant to them and their neighbours.
They played, talked, created and explored their way around their physical home, feelings and stories of home, and their wider sense of home within a community. New music, games, film, animations, poetry and art was created.
Kitchen Circus Project is an ongoing and special partnership between Cirque Bijou, Knowle West Media Centre and Traveling Light Theatre Company and is supported by funding from Arts Council England and Bristol City Council.
A special thanks also to our artists who collaborated on this project: Leeza Awojobi, Megan Clark-Bagnall, Tom Stubbs, Megan Vaughan-Thomas and Mike Akers. Thanks also to Tim Kindberg and Lily Green and their platform Grapevine.
