We've just finished our week at Pegasus with ten troopers aged 16-25 from Oxford and the surrounding areas. Incorporating direct engagement into the process of developing this work has been an incredibly rich experience. Not only does the piece have a physical language now, it also has a more vibrant aural one, the voices of our professional team and our participants as equally important as one another.
Lucy, Anita, Honour, Freya, Phosile, Harri, Kirsty, Joe, Harry and Nicole - thank you.
And Nadia & Corinne at Pegasus - thank you too.
The project is now in the planning stages for final production Summer 2018.
Some lovely things our participants said:
“I learned a new method & process like nothing I’ve ever experienced before”
“I just want to say thank you for the amazing week, I've had such a great experience - well worth the time out of the revision hours! You guys are awesome! :)”
As part of this project, we also trialled offering expenses and childcare support to participants. 5 out of 10 participants said that this financial assistance made it possible for them to take part.
