Our Oracle Project comes to an end for this academic year on Sunday and we're finishing with a piece of work that all fifty 10-12 year old members have been working on since March.
Be Careful What You Wish For has been inspired by our March show, In All The Minutes Ever and is an exploration of time and how impossible it is to control. It's led by four brilliantly quirky scientists - Katie, John, Diamond and Crystal - who, backed by elevator music and with an unnering ability to stare at the audience without blinking for minutes on end, lead us through a number of incidents where people have tried to tamper with the clocks.
It's being performed at Platform this Sunday and the audience is by invitation only - please contact us if you'd like a ticket.
The two Oracle Project groups have been running since November 2011 and have brough scores of Year 6s into a secondary school environment to create work together with some brilliant professional directors. Be Careful What You Wish For has been created with directors Ola Ince and Emily Lim, assisted by two members of our Work in Progress company, Phoebe Burrows and Corey Peterson.
Every week Corey and Phoebe write postcards about each session they help facilitate. They are wonderful entertaining and give a real insight into what goes on in the Oracle rehearsal rooms: you can read them here.
