NEW ADVENTURES IN DEVON

 

 

Charlie is currently preparing for her new role as Young Company 8-11s Dance group Leader for the Winter Term. This is an exciting new adventure for Charlie and she is looking forward to working with the Theatre Royal, Plymouth once again.

 

You will also find her working very hard with two other artists in a collective called By Design Theatre. We are currently working with AGE UK Plymouth to kickstart a steering group of mature members to create and devise theatre of their own as well as designing a programme in partnership with their staff for a project called Friends Across the Pond. Charlie is also writing her first story which she hopes, she can turn into a play and tour in rural areas across Devon and Cornwall with the aim to bring insight into mental health and our coping mechanisms.

 

Charlie is also involved in designing and delivering movement workshops for Reception children to inspire them to read. Working in partnership with Laura Wall, author and illustator of Goose and Friends, Charlie has already given away over 30 books in a special offer with Laura

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Charlie is a vivacious and compassionate artist that intelligently weaves the needs and abilities of her participants into her work. Her wealth of experience as a youth worker in combination with her fierce drive for professionalism and artistic integrity is a joy to behold. She is hungry to collaborate and consistently opens herself up to new opportunities. Her work is organic and always stems from a people-centred process.  I have never known an assistant to give more of themselves to a project. I adored my time working alongside Charlie and I am eager to see where her unwavering dedication and flare leads her next – big, bold, and beautiful things, I’m sure!"
