A promenade, site-sensitive piece, Nursery Crymes takes as its inspiration the dark themes and often hidden meanings in traditional Nursery Rhymes and Children’s stories, themes that include abuse, neglect, racism, religious persecution, royal parody, prostitution and death.

The basic concept of the show has emerged out of the contrasts these rhymes conjure up – on the one hand, they contain very dark themes but on the other hand, they contain nostalgic and beguiling imagery. The show will premiere in Glasgow at the end of 2017.

The Audience's experience will be visceral and abstract. They will be bombarded with different sensations, sounds, images and interactions which should disorientate them within the space. The whole experience should juxtapose childhood experiences of joy, play, nostalgia, wonder and security with fear, unease, confusion and uncertainty.
