Two recent posts in the working diary section of The House project I am working on as part of Jenny Hughes’ Poor Theatres Project.
I have three weeks development work on this project at the moment.
Development extracts are on this channel
From that place where Bambi lives, up and over the hill, then down through the treelined way towards the gate with the coathook that opens into the carpark
From the main road along the other side of the stagnant bit of river towards the carpark
Over the bridge where they carried the fake coffin along the stagnant bit of river near the paper mill and out onto the main road.
Heron Corn Mill residency has begun. I am looking forward to the next six months creating a new performance there and sharing work on “The House” for Poor Theatres linking to local history (Milnthorpe and Kendal Workhouses) in November.
Here is a pic called “Sheep Sniffs Bambi’s Bum” taken on the first day of the residency when I was just following my own creative nose really. The deer and sheep are a short walk up through a gate with a coathook lock and over the field north of the mill towards Dallam Tower.
Heron Corn Mill is a hidden treasure just off the A6 in Beetham, Cumbria. It is self- sufficient thanks to the installation of a Kaplan Turbine that makes the water from the River Bela earn the mill’s living. It is quite an amazing place and well worth a visit if you are up near the Lake District over the summer.
