REPORT DETAIL

Three people attended this Session - Ian, Jude and one other. They appeared separately, except for a short time when Ian and the other contributor were both present.

The question arose - So tell me ‘What is the Sunflower Dream?’
Its a Vision with Dance, Story - maybe becoming a musical, even a movie - its global. Part of the Story is already written - part fairy tale, part autobiographical, but the writing is stuck. Could it be ‘unstuck’ through dance/performance?? Journeying on??

We discussed ‘Why Sunflowers?’ I talked about the Seeds, the Life Cycle, Joy, Beauty. The discussion began to open up around Dance initially. I spoke of a one woman show/performance - suggestions arose for cabaret, integration of humour. We discussed venue - maybe open air/outdoor theatre (is there a place in Norwich focussing on new outdoor work??)

Song and Dance led us to aspects of Music Hall, Spoken Word, cheekiness, informal sharing.

In the pot from Jude went the idea of an Interactive Family Show with Children - Dancing and Singing. I said how much I love to dance with children. There is a contact in Manchester ZArts which could be useful for this type of show.
