The Bancroft Villa Thriller, Milton Keynes. Worked for 6 months with community artists and more than 200 pupils from four schools in Milton Keynes to research, devise and stage a spectacular performance inspired by real archaeological evidence to reveal the stories of two young people who lived around 2000 years ago on the site of the park. This innovative project involved the pupils as archaeologists making their own discoveries and using real evidence to produce their own interpretations; they collaborated through storytelling, theatre and performance arts culminating in a dramatic fireshow where the pupils delivered their performance to an enthralled audience.
