Jodi Watson & Bluebell

My passion is theatre.

My curiosity is the primal need to express and be heard.

My love is creating opportunities for people to meet, engage and share live energy exchanges.

I am a community artist who enjoys playing many different roles:-

- Production manager: of teams of artists and differing  audiences whether in a theatre, in a field or at a funeral.

- Maker: of junk musical instruments, processional lanterns or props of purpose.

- Natural Voice Practitioner: singing with community members of any age, ability or creed.


- Workshop leader: I can run community singing sessions & projects, lantern making, body percussion, flag making, kaleidoscope making………. We can talk ideas!

- Director, designer, performer: creating ideas alone or in a team

 

I have a BTEC in Performing Arts from Thanet Technical College and a 1:1 BA Hons in Theatre Practice from the Central School of Speech and Drama, London.

Since graduating in 2000 I have worked for many Community Arts Companies around the UK from the Liverpool Lantern Company to Macnas in Galway and Welfare State International in Cumbria.

From 2008 - 2012 I co-created and delivered Tongue Tide & Twisted, a company based in Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria which delivered compelling community singing projects and regular singing groups ranging from Singing For The Brain groups for the Alzheimer’s Society to a performance choir singing in and celebrating the landscape. I was also a performing partner in Tongue Tide, a female duo singing at ceremonies and celebrations, life events and comedy cabarets.
