An audio walk adventure for designed for use during national lockdown restrictions.

Stand and Be Counted (SBC) Theatre and The Herd Theatre announce Hidden Winter, an audio walk adventure for families.

Hidden Winter follows 8-year-old Hiba, a mischievous cat, and a trail of winter clothes in a story celebrating the joys and difficulties of making friends in a new place. This brand new story walk adventure is designed to be experienced by audiences on mobile devices, whilst on walks in their local park, or at home, during national lockdown restrictions.

Hidden Winter has been co-created with young asylum-seeker children and families in Bradford and is available for free in English and Arabic from Friday 19 February.

Hidden Winter is funded and supported by Bradford Producing Hub, Hull Truck Theatre, Theatre in the Mill, Oldham Coliseum and Cast in Doncaster. 

Rosie MacPherson, Artistic Director, says: ‘Something that comes up a lot for people seeking sanctuary, particularly newly placed families and individuals, is the issue of getting to know their new area when they don’t know anyone and they don’t speak the language. As asylum seekers are not allowed to work, making friends through employment isn’t an option and with schools closed in lockdown it’s harder than ever to connect. The pandemic has shown how important it is for society, and more specifically theatre, to find new ways to listen and learn from each other. This new interactive story walk adventure feels like an exciting way to create and present theatre that fits with the current routine of our lives, making the new feel familiar and the familiar feel new.’

Ruby Thompson, Artistic Director of The Herd Theatre, adds ‘In family workshops, full of laughter, we created worlds, characters and snippets of story. Together we talked about our experiences and sparked our imaginations to find Hiba’s adventure. The result is a story that we think all children and adults will relate to, experienced in this unique way - through your headphones, in your local park!’
