The Little Box of Memories pilot project is inspired by the methodology of Entelechy’s Brazilian sister company Casa Das Fases. Older performers from Entelechy have built little portable theatre boxes which contain objects that act as prompts to stories from people’s childhoods in the 1940s and 50s. It’s an extremely portable and engaging form of one-on-one theatre. The elders company have been trying out the idea giving performances in local primary schools, Bellingham Summer Fete and in The Clore Ballroom at Southbank Centre.
“A wonderful and unique contribution to the life of our school. It was brilliant. It was fantastic.”
