Hand Printing

Here are some photographs of residents and co-workers in Camphill Milton Keynes doing hand prints on the lorry container that Rex Young (Camphill Milton Keynes's builder) uses as a base to do all his work in. We did this on Tuesday 10th June.

The Evacuation

On Monday 2nd June, The Chrysalis Theatre in Camphill Milton Keynes held a practice fire evacuation.  The Chrysalis had asked David Pibworth (who is the director of Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy) to provide the audience with a magic show. The audience needed to be made up of 209 volunteers. The Chrysalis Theatre had teamed up with Willen Hospice (a charity which provides specialist palliative care and support for families) to mark the start of National Volunteer Week. It was explained that they needed our ‘#TimeNotMoney’. While David Pibworth was performing his show, the fire alarm was set of and Martina Fiserova, who is the theatre manager explained were the fire exits were and that we should assemble outside of the front on the Chrysalis Theatre. This practice fire evacuation was planned in order to review the theatre’s evacuation procedure. There were lots of refreshments of cakes and teas and coffee before and after the fire evacuation in the foyer of the Chrysalis Theatre. I thought this event was important because we know what do if there was a real fire.

The Love of Seven Dolls

On Saturday 31st May, there was a performance of a play called 'The Love of Seven Dolls' in the Chrysalis Theatre in Camphill Milton Keynes. It was performed by a group who work in the Chrysalis Theatre on Mondays. 180 people went to see it.
A bit about this play is this: A young girl called Mouche is about to throw herself into the Seine, when her attention is attracted by a voice. It turns out to be the voice of a glove puppet, called Carrot Top. She then meets Reynard the fox, Gigi, Alifanfaron, Dr Duclos, Madame Muscat and Monsieur Nicholas. The story is about her relationship with the seven puppets and their grim puppet master, Capitaine Coq, and what happens when she joins their travelling show.
I was Monsieur Nicholas. The Love of Seven Dolls was written by Paul Gallico.
These are some photographs of the rehearsals.
