Picture Me There: Share your Charlton thoughts and help a new dance performance

Picture Me There

A special dance project is coming to Charlton, and the people behind it would like you to share your thoughts, memories, pictures and more. BEATRICE, CORNELIS and ORLEY from THE COLLECTORS are here to explain more.

The Collectors are coming to Charlton and would like to invite residents to provide images and text significant to Charlton to help create a performance, called Picture Me There, that is specific to the area.

How can you get involved? There are three ways.

  • Anyone in Charlton of any age can share photos, images, text, maps, memories or anything else involving residents and drawing from the present or past. These items will shape our show. You can drop them here onto our Google Drive.
  • We’re looking for ten to 15 Charlton residents to work with us more closely. They would meet us for a first catch-up and material sharing on Sunday 1 August. They will then take part in a workshop on the Sunday 19 September as well as helping us decide where to perform. All ages welcome. We would like to have an intergenerational group. Venue and times to be confirmed.
  • Anyone can watch and enjoy the free performances on Sunday 26 September.

For more information and to register for the meeting and workshop, email us at thecollectorsprojects[at]gmail.com.
