Morpheus is an innovative approach to involving young people in theatre, creating characters and synchronising their stories in unique ways.
Ideas Test have worked virtually with theatre company Dante or Die and the pupils and teachers at The Will Adams Centre in Gillingham on this project, commissioned by Theatre 31. Morpheus really prioritises young people’s voices, encouraging a sense of confidence and creativity.
Pupils have created characters, monologues, audio recordings and soundscapes. Click on our map and follow a character’s journey through a dream-like world. Stories unfold through innovative digital content including WhatsApp messages, soundscapes, spoken word, and film.
