Our Creativity. Our Climate. 

 Tinderbox are delighted to offer a bespoke creative workshop as part of our touring Sylvan production in November 2021.

Our creative climate workshops will invite participants to engage with their unique creativity through story-telling technique whilst also actively engaging in the physical planting of flowers to take home to their own gardens or community. The workshop will be presented in three segments: Short Performance, Creative Story-Telling and Creative Planting. 

Short Performance 
Worm by Patrick J O’Reilly 

 At the bottom of garden, that’s where we go. To get away from things. To be alone. To think or not to think. Clare was upset that day, she couldn’t get her head together to work things through. The pandemic, the restrictions, the uncertainty. Clare didn’t know what to do until a worm moving though the soil caught her eye. The worm decided to show Clare a different way of looking at things. Worm is a 20 minute short performance about being part of the bigger picture. 

Participatory workshops 
Creative story-telling 

The creative workshop will focus on three separate elements of story/self-narrative: 
 • The Root: The beginning, sense of place, home, origins, family. 
 • Stalk: The journey, growing up, discovering the self from childhood to adulthood 
 • The Flower: Celebrating where you are today. The decisions you took, the moments of joy, the moments of resilience, the moments of regret, the moments of celebration. 

By dividing the narrative into three separate elements, participants are given the creative space to share their stories from their past, reflect on the present and most importantly discover their unique individuality. By using the concept of planting flowers, participants will be invited to share their story whilst digging, planting their unique flower and creativity.

Creative Planting 

The joy of doing an activity whilst being the given the space to speak about your life is a creative process. The opportunity to discuss your own life experience whilst nurturing and planting flowers not only assists in creating a better environment for all but also gives the participant the ability to look at their own lives objectively rather than subjectively. 

 • Dig the soil 
 • Plant the seeds/flowers 
 • Water the flower 

 Tinderbox are specialist theatre practitioners skilled to guide people through the process of story-telling and creativity. Each participant will receive the resources required for planting and will be invited to take their planted flower to their own surroundings.
