New Work Works, Bath Fringe
Amy Rose has been a mentor for Bath Fringe’s New Work Works Artist’s Development Scheme since 2018. In this role, she has facilitated outdoor arts workshops and provided ‘show surgeries’ for emerging, and established, street theatre artists. The programme provides inspiration and support for artists to take risks and explore new approaches to performance in the public realm.
I learnt so much about devising from this process, more so than any other creative process I’ve previously been involved in. It was brilliant, and the simplicity I learnt from it feels more embodied as I create new performance pieces. (Artist’s feedback)
Artists chosen for the programme showcase their new work as part of Bedlam Fair during the Bath Fringe Festival. In 2020, all activities were adapted to meet the challenges and constraints of the pandemic. Covid-safe performances were presented as part of Bedlam Fair and the Bristol Coddywomple.
Amy has been directing and performing outdoor theatre for over 20 years. She has worked with Kneehigh Theatre, Bread and Puppet Theater, The Desperate Men, Ramshacklicious, Holly Stoppit Workshops and others. Her solo work, Rogue Angel, was featured in festivals across North America, Europe and Scandinavia.
Would you like to work with Amy to create playful, engaging, audience and site responsive, outdoor performances or events? We’d love to hear from you!
