Time flies when you’re having fun!

Long time no speak! The last time we spoke like this our Badger and Fox were out in the beautiful Kew Garden’s over Christmas. Apologies that our first blog of the year is…6 months into it, but hey, good things come to those who wait, and we’ve got LOTS of things to tell you. Might want to grab a cuppa…and a biscuit. Or two. Where to start? #We spent a frivolous weekend in Newbury at the 101 Creation Space for the annual gathering of Outside Artists; a weekend of inspiration, creation and fun, a chance to recharge and re-connect, hosted by NASA UK – National Association of Street Artists. This was a chance to meet new friends, new collaborators, see new ideas and have a BIG feast too. We attended some inspiring workshops including Non-Verbal Communication, Writing an Artistic Manifesto, Lighting Design and Inclusion. Gareth has now been voted in to join the steering group for NASA UK. *insert party poppers and fireworks* which will allow him to implement change to large collection of outdoor artists e.g: connectivity and skill sharing. It also opens The Fabularium’s opportunities to connect with new people and events. He’s very excited to bring his […]

Live Briefs @ Coventry University – WEEK 1

  Hello friends! Us again. Happy October! Myself, Josh, Gareth and Connor (Long term Fabularium collaborator and Noctium Artistic Diector) celebrated, by starting our brand new project with Coventry University third year students for their Live Briefs module.  This module is designed to give students direct experience of working within a professional environment; working with a professional theatre company, to create an original piece of work together. The project will be undertaken over 5 weeks, ready to showcase our Macabre Cabaret just in time for Halloween…muahahaha! Week 1 has allowed us to get to know all 45 students, work-shopping the skills of The Fabularium, providing them with the styles, techniques and exercises to help develop a French cabaret.  Now some of you might be thinking, a dark, risky cabaret is not something you would usually expect from us. However, we are excited to explore this experimental avenue. The convention of cabaret is an idea we have been thinking about for future projects.                               We’ve crammed A LOT in this week, from Acro-Balance, Singing, Commedia to Stilt-Walking, Clowning and Bouffon. It’s been fun to go back to […]

We’ve got a question to ask. Actually, a few!

[smartslider3 slider=5]     And just like that, Summer 2018 has come to an end. We would like to say (again!) a MASSIVE thank you to all our audiences that have managed to catch us on tour this year, whether that be Reynard the Fox, The Town Band on Bremen or the brand spanking new There Be Monsters! But before you all dive head first into your pumpkins and Halloween costumes…we would like to ask one more thing. Don’t worry, it’s not scary, we promise! Before we start our preparations for our 2019 tour and exciting projects for the winter (oooh! more about that soon) it would be absolutely wonderful if you could answer a few questions about the themes of There Be Monsters! This will help us evaluate the show but also extend our research by gathering audience perspectives. Please follow the link below to start the questionnaire. It should only take you 5mins!   https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CTVFKJ6 Any information you can share with us is greatly appreciated thank you!   Summer may be gone, but Autumn and Winter are bringing us new exciting projects to get stuck into. Our Autumn project starts on Monday. We will give you a clue, […]
