How to Find Your Name

Bradley Travis and Joanna Marie Skillett


ETO’s opera for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) audiences, is How to Find Your Name, touring to special schools in Spring 2022. It has been created in collaboration with sixth form students at Greenvale School in Lewisham. Written by ETO Associate Artist Bradley Travis, with music by Joanna Marie Skillett, design by Sunny Moon-Little and Sorcha Corcoran, and direction by Abigail Kelly, the piece will be a highly interactive and sensory adventure through land, sea, rainforest, and space that addresses the question – what does it mean to have a name? And what happens when we lose it?

Join our hero on a voyage of discovery through the five senses; smell, sound, sight, taste and touch as they locate each of the five letters of their name. Expect some surprising and peculiar characters including a cheeky tree...

Let’s see if we can help them find their name!
