Alas, we wish we could announce new, imminent projects but a little thing called COVID-19 has put a pause on all shows, workshops, and projects. Why don't you have a look at what we got up to in 2019? We've got our fingers crossed for new projects in 2021! Stay safe folks.
200 Years of Autumn - theatre royal
Physical Theatre & Adaptation
In a performance celebrating the bi-centenary of John Keat's Ode to Autumn, StormCloud were approached by the Theatre Royal Winchester to create an original piece of theatre! The piece was entitled An Education, and told the tale of school students finding the joy of poetry once they are removed from the rigid teaching setting. The piece was heavily rooted in physical-theatre and involved plenty of collaboration with the cast.
voice-body connection workshop
StormCloud were approached by the Performing Arts Winchester: Act group to deliver a session on the importance of body-voice connection. The session was practical, and covered the importance of warming up both your voice and body, getting out of your comfort zone, and how to see the voice-body as connection beings.
performance at the rsc's 'the dell festival'
Together with collaborators Wise + Wayward and Hampshire based creative Angharad Warren, StormCloud performed for the Royal Shakespeare Company! Performing as The Tempest Trio, our directors and Angharad performed traditional folk music and created original songs and soundscapes for Wise + Wayward's nautical, outdoor production of The Tempest.
Stroud Shakespeare Festival 2019
SSF 2019 was a quadruple action festival for StormCloud! Not only were our directors brought on to plan and deliver the festival, but StormCloud brought a modern-language, 1940s inspired production of Much Ado About Nothing. Our directors also performed the music for Wise & Wayward's The Tempest and performed busking sets throughout the festival for audience goers.
the strange undoing of prudencia hart
Music, Theatre, Practitioner
StormCloud were invited to work with the BA (Hons) Performing Arts graduating class at the University of Winchester! StormCloud were brought in as folk music and music in performance specialists, creating the music for their third year performance of The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart. As well as creating and performing music for the show, our directors worked with individual cast members on their own music performance.
Accidental Death of an Anarchist
Spring 2019 brought StormCloud's modern production of Alan Cumming's adaptation of the classic Accidental Death of an Anarchist. This physical comedy was filled with allusions to the then current political climate, and we cast early career artists and students to aid in their professional development.
