In Spring 2018, Clemmie James asked me to design The Gypsy Caravan Theatre, a travelling community theatre in an historic wagon. The Gypsy Caravan Theatre is a touring project, inspiring communities to tell stories and make theatre under the stars, for and with each other. It was a joy to create a set that can adapt and change with each story and project and be flexible for different ages and abilities. The Caravan premiered its new set in a six week residency in Sutton House, Hackney. In this time, Clemmie worked with schools groups, intergenerational projects, families and visitors to tell stories and go on creative adventures!
