Blood Tub Rosie
A community performance for Eastwood, in which the audience was led around various sites near to the DH Lawrence birthplace museum. On the way we met nightsoilmen and window dressers, a demolition man and a cinema owner, a flower grower and of course, our heroine Rosie who has fallen in love with the tram driver of the infamous Ripley Rattler. Our attempt at magic and romance involved our first ever revolving stage (made from the inside of a washing machine) and a courtyard awash with confetti.
Commissioned by Broxtowe Borough Council as part of Eastwood Festival, which is supported by Arts Council England, Eastwood Town Council, Eastwood Theatre Support Group and North Broxtowe Local Area Forum. The performance was also supported by Dance4.
