BEEE Creative presents 'Play'. Commissioned as part of our #TAG project and created by Hertfordshire residents on Zoom in collaboration with Laura Chiabolotti (dance), Matthew Smith (composition) and Dominique Rivoal and Claire Loussouarn (Filmmakers).
Participants shared their childhood stories of play and imagination from train sets and action man, to climbing trees, hopscotch, sand castles and make believe worlds. That sense of play can get lost but how then can we recapture an element of fun and silliness in our life?
#TAG Showcase for Hertfordshire Year of Culture
