Director Andy Brunskill and Puppet Maker Jimmy Grimes have an uncanny ability to discover amazing true stories about man and beast relationships with humanity, pathos…and beautiful puppets. Both Andy and Jimmy are former Associates on War Horse.

Director Andy Brunskill and Puppet Designer Jimmy Grimes create work inspired by humanity’s relationship with nature and animals. Exploring stories from the point of the view of the creatures as much as the humans, they enjoy strong visuals, epic music and pushing their puppets to a new level. They are both former Associates on War Horse. They will be creating an original piece of work inspired by a number of true stories of people and their relationships with wild birds.

Caroline Horton is a theatre maker, performer and writer based between Madrid and Birmingham, who draws on her personal experiences to shed (a humorous) light on taboo subjects. She was nominated for a 2013 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Affiliate Theatre for You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy, which also won The Stage Awards Best Solo Performer in 2010. Caroline will be developing an early years piece on dirt – what are our relationships to it and when do those change? Up until what age can kids play with it and why can boys mess more with it than girls? What levels of permission can be played with when dirt is on stage?
