A puppet called Beasty Baby is having fun holding onto a performers leg whilst being thrown into the air.


We ran a 2-day intensive puppetry-training workshop in October 2017.  We will advertise future workshops here and if you would like to join the mailing list to receive further information then please email cv_at_symbol_theatre-rites_fullstop_co.uk

Mentoring & Development Scheme

This scheme was designed to protect experimentation and risk-taking in the creation of work for children. 

As part of this scheme, we have offered a co-creating relationship to Darren Ellis Dance Company and mentoring to The Wrong Crowd and Page One Theatre.

Sue Buckmaster says ”Darren is an established and committed cross-art form risk-taker who has shown an interest in expanding his approach for a younger audience. We were inspired by his inventive, open-minded and creative approach and are thrilled to be making a new piece of dance theatre for children with him.

The Wrong Crowd and Page One are two talented companies at different stages in developing adventurous and imaginative work for children – exactly what we want to protect”. 

This scheme is currently closed. Please check opportunities for any future mentoring and development schemes.
