All The Journeys I Never Took

A spoken word performance told through interactive theatre. A one woman show for one audience participant at a time. Each person will be taken to a secret location, in the heart of the city, where they are the only witness to an unfolding story. This dynamic and intimate performance is an experience like no other. Beyond Words

Help us succeed and remove the barriers...

Direct theatre, spoken word off-stage - by one performer to one audience member at a time. Why would we do that? Because it's en vogue? Because it's different? Because it will make an impact? Whilst all of those provide some potential kudos and benefits our vision is delivering a performance so personal and so real, it cuts away at the very idea of whom the arts are reserved for and offers a direct look into a much needed question. What does it take for two people to really connect?

A Stellar All Female Production

An immersive journey written and performed by Rebecca Tantony. A published poet and spoken word artist. Rebecca curates the poetry stage at Shambala Festival and is the regional coordinator for Hammer and Tongue in Bristol.
In this, her first live tour, All The Journeys I Never Took leaves behind traditional theatre spaces and makes way for experimental off-site work. Directed by Raquel Meseguer, the co-founder of Physical Theatre company Lost Dog. Our immersive set, the creation of designer Synnove Fredericks whose interactive installations have travelled to New York and throughout France as part of an award winning Object Atelier's Interactive Objects tour.
Producer, Lucy English is a Bath Spa reader in Creative Writing, published author and co-creator of poetry film festival, Liberated Words, guides the team as both producer and manuscript mentor. 

Spoken Word Without Limits

The Arts Council has supported our overall budget. Part of that bid was the action to successfully crowd fund the costs and build of our interactive set. We've set the bar higher because we'd like to take this performance to more places, to offer more people contemporary poetry that will hopefully touch more lives. With a contribution you can help pay poetry forward that provides a multi-disciplinary and unique experience. With your support we can:

Access The Arts Council Funding to deliver this dynamic experience and tour
