Eastbrookend Country Park, Dagenham
31 October 2009, 2010 and 2011
Dende was invited to return in 2010 and 2011 and direct the same show due to the success it achieved in the previous year.
Dende Collective was commissioned by TARU - a non-profit arts and educational organization based in East London, to direct two shows for this outdoor annual event organised by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.
One of the shows was a series of macabre sketches spread along the park that were seen by children on a train ride and the other one was a promenade storytelling event depicting a crime that happened in the woods in that area in the past and was targeted to an older audience. Dende selected 8 professional actors, a storyteller and volunteers from the local Army Cadet Forces to deliver the two shows.
