An artist-designed kit for playing and creating games in your street
A specially made kit for playing and creating games in your street inspired by the wild places in Waltham Forest. Run, balance, dance, photograph and explore together with friends, family and neighbours. For two or more people, ages 8 and upwards.
“Honk, Scuttle, Plop” kits, shown in development here, will be available to play with at events throughout JUMP, as well as being distributed to some Play Streets around the borough.
Alison Alexander is a theatre designer and maker specialising in puppetry. She has worked with many places over the years including the Little Angel Theatre, Tate Modern, RCSSD and Guildhall. When she’s not working with puppets she can be found at various forest schools in the ancient Epping Forest encouraging play.
Hamish MacPherson is an artist-researcher interested in the cross-overs between movement, choreography and philosophy. His work often involved setting up ‘relational structures’ (strange rules or games for example) that can be used for people to learn, make-performances or spend time together in other ways.
