The Lorax

This project, funded by BBC Children in Need, was designed to bring family groups together to promote better communication and develop relationships within the family unit. There were three elements to this project.

Music, The group worked with Gregg Muir to create atmospheres sound scapes using a range of instruments as well as using recycled materials to create new types of instruments with unique sounds. The compositions were then recorded and played during the live performance.

Drama, Working with Hugh McCue the group devised sections of live performance which portrayed the difference in movement and mood for each of the animal groups in the story

Visual Art/Animation, The animated film was designed as a back drop to the live action to show the degradation of the landscape over the time of the performance. The participants were involved in the building of the miniature set and filming the animation. The visual art aspect of the project led by Rachel Toner was used to design the costumes and the parts of the set on stage.
