2015 - Grant awarded  £400

Leaper: A Fish Tale is a new play for children highlighting the importance of protecting marine ecosystems around the UK against destructive fishing methods and pollution. Acclaimed children's puppetry company, Tucked In, will tell the story of one salmon and it’s fight to return home through water, light and puppets made from recycled materials. The show will tour for six weeks and will be performed in theatres around the country for children 4+ and their families.

Leaper is also an environmental project developed directly with school children and scientists and will include a creative learning strand featuring talks and workshops in both schools and aquariums.

Leaper was inspired by an audience member Steve Keay, Reconditioning Unit Manager for Tay District Salmon Fisheries Board, and is based on research supported by Marine Scotland.

Other supporters of the project include Lyric Hammersmith, Brighton Dome, Arts Council England, National Aquarium Ltd. Funding from Sea Changers will go towards to filming on the project to help market the show, share our research and raise awareness of decreasing fish stocks and the urgency for action from our generation and the next.
