Terrestrial are working with an inspiring group of people, who each have experience of addiction, to create a bold performance event for our festival in November.
The Creative Sessions are our weekly workshops with this group. We meet at Weston Artspace 2-4pm on Thursday afternoons, and anyone who identifies with these experiences is welcome to join us.
Artists Clare Reynolds (Co-Director of Restoke), Ania Varez and Tom Spencer (Terrestrial) have been hosting workshops for several months – exploring dance, music, personal storytelling and different performance forms. Out of these drop-in sessions, the group has grown into a strong, ambitious team of collaborators who are leading creative decisions for the project.
This project has grown out of a partnership with Addaction, North Somerset’s primary charity for addiction support services.
