Trailer for Miscreation Theatre production Love and Red Tape

We sometimes work with London-based Set Designer Berta Jones. Here’s her The Experimental Failures of Professor Philip Philopovich  stop-frame animation.  

Developed to characterise the movement of the sad creatures Professor Philipovich creates accidentally in her adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov’s Heart of a Dog.   This animation was largely influenced by a fascination with the Czech filmmaker and artist Svankmajer.  Screened at the HMV Curzon digital cinema, London (2011) See more of her work at:           http://www.albertajones.com/


Last month Haltwhistle Film Project and Prism Arts worked with innovative Kendal physical theatre company The Knotted Project on a 3-day joint venture with Youth Theatre at Brewery Arts in Kendal. Footage here soon.

Dragon’s Lantern excerpt – projection and Georgian street theatre in Cockermouth:

For nearly 15 years we’ve worked with Humshaugh  Theatre Group and Maurice Gilmour, who wrote the book on education and Shakespeare. 

 In Development…Phase I completed

      Junk & Judy

Two cultures with missing parts. A woman inherits a run-down junk shop  from her estranged father. We’ve completed Phase I (thanks to Arts Council England) and are planning Phase II  so we can take Junk and Judy, a theatrical performance with live drama, puppetry and digital projections animations and more on the road. Musicians Mark Newport and Chris Stones have created original music across the two cultural traditions.  We aim to tour the show nationally next year.
