Chickenshed is an inclusive theatre company who create theatre for all ages and run successful outreach projects, education courses and membership programmes. Its mission for inclusion has never been lost and is central to the work Chickenshed does and the projects it undertakes. This year Chickenshed in association with Performance Infinity, the Xia Men Min Nan Theatre company and CPAA, collaborated in bringing Chinese children together to create their own production. The children were given a brilliant grounding in all aspects of theatre, helping to build confidence and social awareness. In conjuncture with director David Carey the children had a key input into the creation of their own play ‘Looking for Green Land’, a non-traditional piece which the children helped to write, develop and create. The play was performed both in the U.K and China. Performance Infinity was delighted to help be part of this fantastic collaboration aiming to inspire and educate Chinese children through the theatre.
