Through weekly online sessions in a specially devised virtual creative space, young artists built characters and narratives that make up the dream-like world of Morpheus. This interactive map gave audiences a complete digital experience, along with visual and aural soundscapes, spoken word, and film.
Morpheus saw local arts organisation Ideas Test curate a term-long programme at Will Adams Centre in Medway, a local alternative provision school. Teaming up with acclaimed theatre makers Dante or Die, this project celebrated the young people, and empowered the participants and school staff to embark on a creative journey and co-create a spectacular piece of digital theatre.
The young artists explored local stories and personal experiences entwined with in-depth characterisation and thrilling narratives that make up this unique digital experience. Everything from the production title to the artwork was youth-led, celebrating the creativity and self-expression of our young people.
