Seek Find Speak is an interactive installation spoken-word performance adaptation tailored to your village hall environment. Your hall will be transformed to create The Lost Words Wood – birdsong underscore and golden charms will be hidden around the centre pageant stage for audience to seek, find and speak. Creating a sensory landscape of birdsong, dance and poetry, the audience will become part of the performance as they join the performers (a charm of goldfinches) in summoning back the Lost Words with their voices.
This work is commissioned by Wild Rumpus CIC to create a new theatrical adaptation of The Lost Words, and will be premiered at TIMBER, first International Forest Festival at the National Forest, in July 2018. The phenomenon of this magical spell book since its release in October 2017 has caused a flurry of crowd funding campaigns across the country to get as many copies of it in front of children in Britain, as possible.
