WW1 storytelling project at Oxford’s Story Museum
1st September 2016Cat Nightingale
Yasmin took time out from Night Light to immerse herself in World War One this summer. Commissioned by The Story Museum, Oxford, Incredible Journeys was a children’s show featuring stranger than fiction animal tales of endurance, friendship and battlefield heroism inspired by real events.
The six new short stories created by the company were part of 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary. Yasmin was co-director, a story writer, editor and performer.
The show was also taken to Green Fields Beyond Festival in Lincoln, with Rosa Productions and BBC Radio Lincolnshire.
