Residencies

Tangled Feet have taken up artistic residency in schools, colleges, town halls, museums, local parks and libraries...

Our residencies have lasted anything from a day to four months. We work with partners and participants to create the production and process they imagine in the place where they live, work or play.

What it's like to have us in residence

“It's been an incredible week in so many ways and we have been reminded again that the only constant in life is change. Sometimes, changes can seem threatening and destabilising, but they can also be incredibly moving and liberating. Art can be a tremendous challenge and consolation and I found all of the performances of All That Is Solid gave me lots to think about. Most importantly, they made me feel something profound and true. ”- Jon Nicholls, Head of Arts College, Thomas Tallis School -
“I really didn't want this week to end. I personally think I learned much more than could have been anticipated and only wish this had happened sooner in Tallis. It was challenging and hard work the whole week but really rewarding. I think everyone involved would agree it was a great thing to happen in the school and should create a window for more people to want to do similar things”- Student, Year 13 -
“What an amazing experience for the audience but more importantly for the students. Such immersive experiences are vital for a small rural school where geography and funds limit access to mainstream art and culture. It may sound unlikely that eight days can make such a difference to children’s lives but such a unique experience which takes them out of their comfort zone and plunges them into a different world alongside other students they may not have socialised with or thought they had anything in common with can be truly transformative.”- Parent -

How Tangled Feet are tackling anxiety in children

A report from the Children’s Commissioner at the end of last year found that there is an ‘epidemic of anxiety’ in young people. The number of children seeing psychiatrists has risen by a third, with the highest increase – 31% in a year – seen in those aged 9 and under. It’s a shocking rise. (Thanks to Flossie Waite from Children’s Theatre Reviews for digging out the statistic).   It was this sort of news that prompted us to make Butterflies, a Co-Production with Half Moon, that used anxiety in children as a starting point for a show for 3-8 year olds. We first started making the show in 2017 and did some test performances at Half Moon. This year we have developed the show and it’s touring until Nov 24th.  Alongside the tour we have launched a Mindfulness programme to run in four schools in 2019.
