Hello stranger...

It's been a very long time since we last posted here, and there's so much to catch up on!

The Strange Train Company is currently enjoying a  period of R&D. That's 'research and development'; we must have taken a wrong turn, becuase we were hoping for some 'R&R'....

Earlier this season Sophie enjoyed a period of mentorship with Alex Rigg,  http://www.oceanallover.co.uk/ as she designed and made costumes for Manchester Day, collaborating once again with performers from The Circus House, Manchester. His incredible sculptural costumes and choreography make him a most inspiring artist to work with!

This opportunity has already impacted on the evolution of 'The Magnificent Menagerie of Mrs Strange', and the development of some interesting movement work, and by next year some new costume elements. We have enjoyed taking this early stage work onto the streets at Manchester Day, and Refract Festival, at Waterside Arts, Sale.

Travelling with us this year we have been delighted to include musicians, Paul Jones, and Hels Davies. Their collaboration will lead the train onto new 'tracks'....

And so, the train continues it's journey, sometimes meandering, frequently pausing for essential maintenance, but always looking to the next stop, wherever that may be.
