Red Herring Productions
Red Herring is a theatre company based in Bideford, North Devon. We specialise in outdoor, interactive performance that blurs the edges between the performance and the audience.
The performance that we make are fun, comic, curious and considered. We take a sideways look at the world we live in and encourage people to experience familiar places and familiar stories in unfamiliar ways.
We make performance on street corners, urban parks and more remote, rural locations. Our projects involve a period of research where we find out as much as we can about the place, the people who live there and where possible we offer workshops and other opportunities to take part.
The Whistler Conservation Society exists to educate and protect a lesser known and ancient culture of people who live in the woods, in close symbiosis with songbirds. As the forests have disappeared from Western Europe, communities of Whistlers have been broken up and are increasingly under threat. Anthropologist Lynne Passerine has been following a small group of Whistlers whose lives are wrapped up with those of some of our most vulnerable bird species. Will they adapt and survive?
Whistlers has been commissioned by Green Carpet – a consortium of 4 arts organisations spread across France, Belgium and the UK.
