Co-writer and Performer | Punchdrunk Enrichment
Up, Up and Away brings to life the tale of Marianne Montgolfier, Vincent Lunardi and Bernard Blanchard. As story balloonists they travel the world, letting the wind carry them from place to place, collecting, gathering and telling stories.
Eager to spread the art of story telling and to find new imaginative storytellers, they decide they can only visit places that they know will provide them with brilliant new stories and storytellers.
“You don’t have to just put normal stuff in your story you can put imposssible stuff in” KS2 pupil
“It can be hard to motivate the pupils, especially as they get older. This was something exciting, and real to inspire them, and the teachers. There were lots of opportunities to motivate the pupils” Year 5/6 teacher
