Working with the Young Vic's Outreach & Education programme in 2015, Parrot in the Tank devised and directed this immersive show with 30+ autistic children from the neighbouring boroughs.
Based on the story of Franz Kafka's The Trial, the immersive show is set in a factory that proves or disproves the case against the novel's main protagonist, K.
The show was devised and designed around the children's ideas and in a way that enabled them to take control of the scenes throughout the performance.
In 2014, as part of the Young Vic, Parrot in the Tank devised and directed a show with 30+ autistic children in the London Borough of Southwark.
'Basecamp' follows a journey of young explorers travelling across snowy mountains and discovering challenges to overcome as well as appreciating the small things nature has to offer.
'Basecamp was a sensory show devised with the children to empower them to narrate and be the focus of the story. The show was marked by Young Vic's artistic director David Lan as "an outstanding achievement".
Mr and Mrs Mungus could not be happier. They live a happy life, live in a happy town and are expecting their first baby. Until they find out little Hugh is born a giant baby eating everything it can get its giant mits on.
As the baby becomes a world-wide phenomenon and the town booms in newly found tourist industry, the government plots a secret plan to clone Gargantua into an army of giant nappied babies. One word of advice.... Never mess with Gargantua.
Gargantua was written by Carl Grose and produced by artsdepot as part of the National Theatre Connections programme 2011.
