The Storytelling Army

In 2017 we were commissioned by Brighton Festival to create a World Premier for the festival, The #StorytellingArmy, alongside Guest Director Kate Tempest.

“Each one of us has a story to tell. Extraordinary moments amongst the ordinary. The little victories against the odds. An everyday epic.”

We worked with local partners Cascade Recovery Cafe, The Clocktower Sanctuary, Audio Active and Brighton Festival and Dome’s Miss Represented to assemble and mobilise a Storytelling Army: a dynamic collective of people from all walks of life and all corners of the city, including those who are homeless and vulnerably housed and those in recovery. A ten week workshop programme took place across the city with guest tutors including Chester P, Inja, Charlotte Josephine, Luke Barnes, Paul Cree and Cecilia Knapp.
