Red Earth is a Derby based theatre company that exists to create theatre that ‘captures the heart and challenges the mind’. They are pioneers of integrated theatre and develop new techniques for accessible storytelling that test convention and advance inclusive practice.
Red Earth makes theatre for children and families and specialises in using sign languages. They are committed to many different voices on stage; to a multitude of stories, not a single story; to Deaf, disabled, and diverse artists and audiences, especially those who are marginalised and disenfranchised.
During lockdown, Red Earth went on a Virtual Tour! They provided 3 sessions a week, each led by one of Red Earth Theatre’s amazing team of freelance artists.
Captioned videos of those sessions are all now on their website: a number of fun activities you can do together, to make your own theatre-based stuff. Packed into their virtual tour van they have ideas around storytelling, creating characters, theatre design, music and song writing, lighting and sound design; puppet making and mindfulness.
