It's behind you! The rediscovery of Strood through pantomime
Frost, J. 2016. It's behind you! The rediscovery of Strood through pantomime.
In October 2015 I was asked to present a talk on mumming plays and the Kentish hooden horse for a community project in Strood, one of the most deprived towns in Kent. This led to my full participation as performer, puppet-, prop-, and mask-maker for the production of an unusual pantomime in the English Heritage property, Temple Manor. This paper explains how my background in puppetry and performance and my research into folk traditions enriched a community play and helped the participants to rediscover and value their heritage.
