About

We need your help to get our project off the ground so we can make an impact in our local community!

We’re inviting young families to step inside our woodland production, celebrating the everlasting impact that a loved one can have on those around them. 

Badger’s Parting Gifts follows the story of a group of woodland animals, who experience the loss of their dear friend Badger. Through their grief, they relive their most loved memories and remember all of the wonderful things he taught them. Their retellings remind us of the ‘forever’ gifts our loved ones leave behind.

As a collective, we plan to create an immersive woodland experience incorporating multisensory elements for families with children aged five and over. Based in the heart of Kent, we plan to make theatre that tackles big topics for the youngest members of our community.

The production takes the topic of loss and handles it in a warm, sensitive and gentle manner making it accessible for children. The number of young people affected by the passing of a loved one is ever increasing, where in the UK 'there are currently 112 newly bereaved children everyday' (Childhood Bereavement Network). Collectively, we want to provide an alternative means for children and their families to explore and discuss loss, openly and honestly. 

By presenting the theme through multiple art forms, including dance, song, music, puppetry and spoken word, we will create a safe environment that caters to the diverse ways in which our audience may connect with the story. Research around engagement and understanding, such as the visual-auditory-kinaesthetic model, tell us that individuals digest information differently. Therefore, it is our aim to use a variety of approaches in order to create the spark for a conversation to take place.

inter:Collective Theatre are a small group of local artists of mixed disciplines with a passion for community theatre. Established in 2017, we are a graduate theatre company beginning our first professional project and currently gaining momentum in the work we do. We are seeking support from local businesses, in exchange for acknowledgement on our marketing materials, in order to reach as much of the community as possible. 

Any enquiries regarding sponsorship or alternative support, please contact our team at intercollectivetheatre@gmail.com

Risks and challenges

We have full rights in place to adapt the book so there are no issues getting the project going. We have cast ready and in place but just need some funding to gather the raw materials to make this project a reality.

We have a strict schedule which we intend to stick to and aim to have this project on its feet by October 2018.

As a team, we liaise and communicate and we appreciate your support is there to help get this project ready for the community. We therefore promise to document, promote and openly share the working process of this project throughout.
