Bedford Music in Detention delivered by Bedford Creative Arts in partnership with The Higgins Bedford is delighted to announce a new commission, ‘Routes Bedford’ as part of ‘Routes’ by Theatre Témoin.

Routes Bedford will be a large-scale puppetry and sound installation theatre piece. Over the course of six workshops in early autumn, Theatre Témoin will construct the puppets with Bedfordians, members of the local refugee and asylum-seeking communities and those who work to help refugees in the community.
The resulting theatre piece will be showcased as part of  Bedford Fun Palace at The Higgins on 6 and 7 October.

With Routes, Theatre Témoin will bring their vibrant visual style to the great outdoors, using clowning and large-scale puppetry on a journey exploring conflict and belonging.

This year Témoin are delivering a series of creative projects throughout the UK which will feed into the creation of Routes, a large-scale outdoor puppetry piece built with and by a mixture of refugee, migrant and British-born artists and community groups which will tour the UK in 2019 and 2020.

‘Routes’ has been developed and researched with Refugee, Migrant, and Native British groups and artists in partnership with PsycheDelight, Young Roots, A Band of Brothers, Creating Ground, and Greenwich Migrant Hub.

Theatre Témoin, commissioned by Without Walls, Greenwich and Docklands International Festival, Stockton International Riverside Festival, and Brighton Festival,  and with support from Arts Council England and 101 Creation Space.
