Flute’s Pericles at Centrum Kultural Lublin 2019. A film by Pawel Gregorowicz:
Our third production for people with autism offers a deeper experience of music, love, loss and joy than we have dared give our audiences before.
Listen to our music here…
This show was been developed throughout 2019, originally created by Kelly Hunter in Sweden for the Scen:se project, where it is still being performed. Our production uses our Hunter Heartbeat formula, fifteen people on the spectrum are invited to become the participants for each performance, sitting with six actors in a circle on the floor around a painted floor cloth, which represents the journey of Pericles. The children’s families sit just behind them. The actors invite the children to join them as the story unfolds through sensory games, which the children and actors play together. The show has been performed in English, Polish and Romanian.
Where we have been
The production was created by the company in October 2019 and performed at Strathmore School, Richmond on October 4th 2019.
Since then it has performed with the same UK company of actors at:
Galeria Katowice, Katowice Poland. Oct 2019. Performances in Polish
Centrum Kultury, Lublin Poland with Fundacja Alpha. Performances in Polish
Teatrul Gong, Festival Tanar de Sibiu, Romania. Nov 2019. Performances in Romanian.
Bush Theatre Attic space, London. January 4th 2020
We are continuing to perform the production, with national and international residencies.
The Pericles games form the basis of our ongoing work in the Flute Dreams project and our research with UCL and Goldsmiths.
In Spring 2020, we will be performing Pericles in Catalan at Escuela Especial Monserrat Montero with AADPC in Barcelona.
