ARU Magic Me - ARCH Project - Dare To Imagine

Full Report 13 Fevered Sleep Fevered Sleep was established in 1996 by artistic directors Sam Butler and David Harradine. All our work is made in collaboration with people outside the company, and participation is at the heart of everything we do. We see our creative process as a kind of research: a way to investigate and reimagine the complex and challenging world in which we live. We’ve worked with performers, designers, artists, scientists, doctors, teachers, vets, philosophers, social workers, all sorts of other adults and many, many children. We invent new kinds of spaces which invite people to come together and share their experiences of things that matter. Our projects have appeared across the UK and internationally. Sometimes we work in theatres and galleries such as The Young Vic, Sadler’s Wells, Tate Britain and Sydney Opera House. Sometimes we turn up in other places where people work, learn and live, like at Sherrell House Care Home. Our most recent relevant projects include; This Grief Thing, encouraging people to think, talk and learn about grief; The Sky Is Filled With Thunder, an audio artwork making space for children to be truly heard; and Men & Girls Dance, which celebrates the rights of adults and children to be together, to play together and to dance together. The Artists’ Residencies in Care Homes programme connected with our wider body of work in that it brought artistic intervention into people’s everyday lives and was created in direct response to the needs of the people engaging with it in a creative collaboration. This project committed wholeheartedly to our wider purpose to create a more caring, curious and compassionate world, one unlikely art project at a time.
