Performances and Events

From time to time our Creative Homes groups have chosen to share the work they have developed with friends, family, peers, neighbours and other Bubble groups.

June 2018
Origins and Ripples

Part of our annual Creativity & Wellbeing week programme for 2018.
Origins and Ripples invited people to see, hear and taste some of work our groups have created based on their stories, lives and interests.
The afternoon included a performance piece inspired by stories of rice; sound art inspired by domestic sounds and objects; and movement choreography and tales around themes of home.

March 2017
Intergenerational event with Bubble Young Associates

Our Creative Homes group at Silverlock SHU have been devising a series of sketches focusing on bullying in a secondary school.  Keen to share their work with a younger audience, we invited some of our Bubble Young Associates (BYA), who have previously devised and toured their own shows to secondary schools during their time as Young Theatre Makers to see their first performance.  Our BYAs also created some short scenes, inspired by stimulus given to them by our Silverlock group.
They groups enjoyed a shared workshop, performed for each other and talked over drinks & refreshments.
With thanks to Age UK for their financial support of this event.

A Chocolate Affair

This year our longest established group have devised their own comedy sketch which they are taking on tour to other Bubble groups in the Borough.
Set in a chocolate factory in Tooley Street, join a vintage Casanova and his workers as their in-house shenanigans are revealed.
Remember the truth always comes out…

Our Winter Festival brought together groups across Bubble’s Creative Elders programme on a small tour across the sheltered housing schemes in which Creative Homes takes place in Southwark.
