Gauche the Cellist Tour
Absolutely wonderful time devising and executing artistic direction and composition workshops for production ‘Gauche the Cellist’ for music and shadow puppetry. We toured 4 additional support needs schools in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, giving 8 school workshops, 4 school performances, and 2 public performances in Woodend Barn Banchory, all in one week! Here is a lovely short clip of our show (thank you Symon Macintyre!)
