Physical games and improvisations
Imagination play – exploring the show’s themes of space, journeying and new spaces
Tessa is a theater maker, producer and performer specializing in puppetry, physical theater and music (trumpet, piano, ukulele and singing). In addition to freelancing for other companies, she makes innovative theater productions for family audiences with her own theater company. Her shows tell original stories, aimed at encouraging a dialogue between the generations. She is passionate about delivering high-quality theatrical experiences to children that inspire and excite but do not patronize. Tessa has made four Arts Council England-funded productions: The Tap Dancing Mermaid, Arnold’s Big Adventure, The Melody Makers and her latest show, A Strange New Space. In 2013, Tessa joined forces with Tomasin Cuthbert (Soap Soup Theatre) and Liz Hart (Bric A Brac Productions) to form a new theater company, Lady Strong’s Bonfire. They have since made The Bed, Mummy Monster and The EnviRons. She is also an author of children’s fiction and self-published her first book, The Tap Dancing Mermaid in July 2015.
