“An evening of heart-warming texts, local jokes, and newly devised and innovative Physical Theatre, The Poppy Project has been established for and by the community.”

The Poppy Project is an arrangement of three innovative Physical Theatre performances, devised and adapted by the award-winning Anthos Arts collaborative. From theatre produced by youths as a consequence of their involvement with industry professionals, to a comical adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night by Anthos’ in-house troupe of classical and Physical Theatre performers and musicians, these three pieces will inspire, entertain and invigorate audiences of all ages.

​"Wings in The Way was an inspiring performance by Devon teenagers. They used music mime and and movement to play out the situations that modern society throws at the younger generations, and they did it with conviction and skill. It was an execllent production by Anthos Arts and we look forward to seeing them again."
