Whippet Up (with Amelia Coburn)

 Redcar and Cleveland based community arts organisation Whippet Up will be performing their pop up theatre show, 'For the People, By the People'. 


Whippet Up uses art and creativity as a way of working with people to improve wellbeing and tackle social isolation.

'For the People, By the People' is a pop up puppet theatre telling tales inspired by local folklore. Redcar and Cleveland based Whippet Up worked alongside people referred to them for a wellbeing boost turning junk and found items into puppets, props, and costumes. They are joined live on set by local folk artist Amelia Coburn, who worked with Whippet Up's groups to write songs that narrate the tales. Together they have created a dazzling family friendly show that unlocks the humour, meaning and mayhem found in local folktales.
