Kindred by Anna Carr
February 2020 - April 2021
Anna Carr is a socially engaged multi-arts Theatre Maker and is making her first autobiographical solo theatre show 'Kindred'. Using the lens of her grandparents love story & legacy, Anna is exploring the impact of uncovering family secrets on perceived identity.
I worked with Anna as Creative Producer on the creation of 'Kindred'.
In 2020 (before covid) Anna performed ‘Kindred’ as part of NST’s 'Make It SO' festival, performed at Wiltshire Creative’s Scratch Night, shared her discoveries as part of the Critical Exchange network (a space arts) in Southampton, and hosted conversations about family histories, relationships and identity with Primary school students and care home residents in Eastleigh. And then covid hit.
We continued to develop the work, with many twists and turns and in 2021 we developed a work-in-progress audio piece and shared it with a live invited audience (online).
