Intergenerational Work

Since 2000, Bubble has delivered 12 'open' projects. 'Open' in that they involve people and the process and the artistic aspiration signal that the work is 'open'. Some of these open projects have been outdoor, sometimes they are site specific, promenade, scripted, verbatim, devised, all quite different but all with one commonality - they had a company of performers aged between 7 and 70 who were able to give their time and creativity because the project was open to all.

Our current intergenerational project - Charting the Mayflower - is exploring the story of the Mayflower's voyage in 1620. If you are interested in local history or have a story of migration to share you might like to get involved.
We are looking for volunteers to help us explore the history and contemporary resonances of the Mayflower, and share it with the wider community in North Southwark.
Workshops run on Thursday evenings from 6.30-8.30pm at Bubble HQ, SE16 4JD.

We're having a summer break at the moment but will resume from 30th August 2018.

In 2016-18 we  investigated the subject of primary schools, and the part they play in our lives, through a creative process involving children, adults and artists. Training sessions, interviews and workshops led to a co-created performance piece - Primary - given by a multi-generational cast and choir in March 2018.

In 2015-16 After Hiroshima explored the British response to the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.  Through interviews and research around topics including the Cold War and the Nuclear Disarmament peace movement we developed a production performed in Spring 2016.

This followed on from an intergenerational project that we ran in Japan, called Grandchildren of Hiroshima. This project saw a piece of theatre carefully crafted from interviews with Hibakusha (survivors of the atomic bomb). After Hiroshima was a way for us to bring this subject back to the UK and learn how it impacted residents here.
