Welcome to another Wondrous Wednesday, our blog dedicated to Wondrous Stories! Conceived and directed by our Artistic Director Kevin Finnan, this extraordinary large-scale production will be the opening show of the Birmingham 2022 Festival.
When staging a large-scale show like Wondrous Stories it really does take a lot of people to make the show happen behind the scenes. Besides the cast, the creative team [choreographers, composers and costume designers], the production team [lighting, audio, riggers, crewing], there is usually a dedicated bunch of volunteers helping with the event and show management – doing little jobs to help with the smooth running of everything!
Motionhouse and our producing partners at OPUS, love working with volunteers who are passionate about arts and culture in their cities. We have a great respect for people who are donating the most valuable thing we all have – our time – to creative endeavours like this show.
Over the years, great friendships have been forged with volunteers who have come together on shows like The Voyage, Watermusic and Lumen. This will be no different for Wondrous Stories, and today we have released our expression of interest form if you would like to find out more.
