“Behind the curtains, between the walls and in open spaces a town is illuminated as loneliness seeps into its soul.”

Lonely Town was a collaboration between Anstee Bridge students, theatre designers and a writer.

With a draft script to hand, designers collaborated with the students to make individual model boxes depicting rooms and spaces which can impact our experience of loneliness.

The writer was present to observe the designs and listen to the students’ conversations to entwine the responses into the script. The final script was professionally performed as part of Anstee Bridges ongoing approach to celebrating the students work with the community.

Bounce has worked with Anstee Bridge for 10 years. You can see some of our other projects in our impact report here.
