New Bring Back Chainmail video
Found In Translation are delighted to release this new video, filmed as part of our Bring Back Chainmail R&D in 2021.
Last April we completed our Bring Back Chainmail R&D in a collaboration with Autism Anglia, on our first project funded by Arts Council England, to prepare a touring version of Chainmail while thinking about accessibility for neurodiverse audiences. Over two weeks of research and rehearsal we worked and played with consultants from our partner charity Autism Anglia, including autism awareness training and workshops on communicating with audiences in accessible ways. We also revelled in our medieval heritage by learning from academic expert Dr Deirdre Serjeantson, from the University of Cambridge, and Regia Anglorum’s living history reenactors. We rounded off the project with a visit to Doucecroft School, run by Autism Anglia, where we piloted a fun new medieval themed workshop for young people & staged a relaxed performance of Chainmail, with some amazing feedback from their students. So that we could share the magic of these wonderful two weeks, we asked local video production company Aura Films to come along and capture our company in action. Their awesome video is now available to watch on our Youtube channel here: Bring Back Chainmail Trailer It’s also a great way to get a taste of our touring production, which is now looking for venues to perform later in 2022/23 - so if you have a theatre to programme, or even a school or heritage site that could host a performance, take a look!
