About the Organisers
New Arts North is an artist-led inclusive arts organisation (est 2009), based in the North West of England. We specialise in creating projects that act as catalysts for change in people's lives. With teams of arts professionals, including puppeteers, dramaworkers, script-writers and visual artists, we work with communities to create new bodies of work and performances, of the highest quality.
What are our intimate feelings around the idea of home? Do we feel an extra need for security or shelter during times of change? Celia Burbush has been collaborating with puppeteer Ali McCaw, to develop a live interactive performance piece. Two homeless puppets will be travelling along the west coast of Cumbria carrying out research, asking the community how they feel about ‘home’ and ‘identity’. They will be visting the streets of Maryport, Whitehaven and Workington. The puppets have been inspired by Gulliver’s Travels, a novel that explores a man’s shifting identity and sense of belonging.
