The Knotted Project were funded through the Artists International Development Fund from Arts Council England & British Council in 2017 to begin a unique international partnership. 

TKP travelled to Rouen in the north of France in early 2017 to work with French theatre company, Mumbo Jumbo. Mumbo Jumbo fuse multiple languages and dynamic storytelling to bring both new and classic tales to life. They present work in a number of settings and specialise in engaging young people in foreign languages through theatre. 

TKP's residencies with Mumbo Jumbo have been focused on the importance and purpose of language in theatre. These collaborations have seen the development of short physical theatre pieces exploring 'The curious world of dreaming' & 'The love/hate relationship between the French and the English'. These short R&D's were presented to audiences and industry networks in Rouen and form the base of exciting plans for TKP's international touring work for the future.
