Another of my two great passions brought together. The Bard and bringing interactive and child-led storytelling to the under 5's. I love the disciplines of Vivian Gussin Paley, fantasy play and the Reggio Emilia Approach from Italy http://www.aneverydaystory.com/beginners-guide-to-reggio-emilia/main-principles/
"It's got to be fairies!" we said as I planned and devised with Colin Phillimore who set about creating: a 'Will 'o the wisp'ish Puck, assorted gossama fairies, The Mechanicals: Lion, Moon, Piramus and Thisbe - not forgetting the all important 'Wall'. Of course casting Piramus as a vegetable allows us to indulge one of our favourite Shakespeare's lines: "Eyes as green as Leeks!"
It's off to Christchurch and Blandford Libraries Tuesday 8 November and Bournemouth and Poole Libraries on Thursday 10 November.
Sorry "if we shadows have offended!"
