Oakham Library to host Carbon Theatre’s Seedling audio installation





An audio installation will shine a light on big issues this half term.

Carbon Theatre will open an installation, called Seedling, in Oakham Library from Friday, May 24 to Saturday, June 1.

Writer Helen Crevel is the voice behind the installation, and has also recorded audio pieces specifically for children under 12, which have been co-created with pupils at Cottesmore Academy.

The installation will be based in Oakham Library from May 24 and June 1

These will be shared alongside textile creations, made by local people in the weeks leading up to the installations.

The sessions will aim to look at how families shape identity and relationships with places people live.

Co-creator, Anne Langford, said: “We are thrilled to be developing a new story with and for children, exploring how we can care for ourselves and each other in a changing climate.

“A surprising and exciting encounter, between a child and fox will support children to reflect on how they can be good stewards of the natural world, and benefit from the pleasure and wellbeing that connection to the natural world brings.

“The original audio piece Seedling focused on potential motherhood, environmental responsibility and consumerism, seeking to provoke conversations on the themes.

“Housed in a specially designed space, audiences are once again invited inside to hear the piece, feeling like they are entering a domestic space, someone’s home, with the dome-like shape covered in textiles and fabrics.”
