The Spark is delighted to work with Trina Haldar and her company Mashi Theatre.
The Tales of Birbal - Drawing from ancient cultures and diverse artistic influences, Mashi Theatre developed a new unique production of Indian folk tales. Trina received funding for the research and development stage of the project and showed the results of the work to delegates at The Spark Festival in 2013.
Mashi Theatre then premièred school performances with workshops at The The Spark Festival in 2015 and a new production appeared at The Spark Festival 2017 before a national tour.
The Spark has also supported Trina in visiting Reggio Emilia in Italy to explore their approach to early years teaching and learning.
