Repose: We Are Here

Tinderbox Theatre Company


REPOSE is a rejuvenating soundscape where listeners can embark on a formidable journey through five different landscapes using vocal guidance, the elements and your imagination.
Each stage of the journey is aligned with specific guidance to promote mental health and well-being whilst also inviting listeners to explore their own imagination. The journey is practised by theatre practitioners across the world, and Tinderbox wish to make this journey available and accessible to everyone during the current self-isolation period, as contact with the natural environment is severely limited at this time. 
The Journey is in 5 key stages:
· The Sea: Calm 
· The Forest: Explore 
· The Mountain: Resilience/Accomplishment 
· The River: One step at a time / Mindfulness
· The Plain and Sunset: Release,
Breath / Awareness
Sound Design - Isaac Gibson 
Vocals - Adam Dougal


The calm vocal guidance gives the participant time to engage with their own imagination. In this way, it is different from a passive form of visualisation as it requires active engagement. 
Mental Health and Well-Being:
Each stage of the journey symbolises an important aspect to emotional well-being; Repose provides your staff with the opportunity to feel these attributes, rather than merely understand them.
Nature/ Self-Isolation:
Nature has a significant impact on our emotional well-being. Repose offers 5 glimpses of natural environments in 15 minutes.
