A New Kind of Normal (2020)
An interactive performance poem in 8 parts to help primary school children discuss, process and flourish from their experiences of the Covid-19 lockdown.
The poem explores key themes, including the power of community, the importance of our planet and humans’ place within it, the science of germs and - most important of all - the strength and creativity within us to empower us to triumph over adversity.
A beautiful and fun animated film of the poem co-produced with Hot Coals Productions. Using a diverse group of actors, animations and combining British Sign Language, Sign Supported English, Visual Vernacular, and creative captioning, every child will be captivated, and inspired.
