We're grassroots Heathrow residents proving that communities less dependent on oil can be more resilient, stronger and happier. We take direct action on climate change and shrinking supplies of cheap energy by transitioning to a post-oil, community-led future for the Heathrow villages.

Kaleidoscope performance residency

Posted: March 22nd, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Events | Tags: , , , , | 2 Comments »

From the 6th- 10th June, Grow Heathrow needs YOU. Calling all with a background in; theatre, dance, poetry, movement, puppetry, music, visual arts, circus…. and anything else…

Grow Heathrow (our squatted community garden) are offering the opportunity to be part of a 5-day theatrical residency that explores the creative link between resistance, permaculture, occupation and transition. Immersed in the realities of group living within a place that would be destroyed by the third runway, we’ll build a freely creative and imaginative response to the history of Sipson’s fight against the third runway, Grow Heathrow and the Transition Town movement.

The residency will culminate in a performance in the local village and later on one at the Grow Heathrow site, both on Sunday 10th June. Although this is a 5 day residency, the first two days of devising are optional, and you can come on board just from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th if you are limited with time, although the whole shabang is advised

Timetable

Wed 6th – Thurs 7th: Nourishment, development and devising
