The Anarchist’s Mobile Library – digital

An interactive, digital adventure for ages 6-11. Available in English Audio, BSL and Welsh Audio.

‘The Anarchist’s Mobile Library’ will take you on an incredible adventure that YOU choose, solving problems and meeting characters, from anywhere you choose to play! With many different worlds to explore, where will your adventure take you? Perhaps an intergalactic space adventure? Or a deep-sea swim, meeting creatures that lurk in the depths? Or even an abandoned witch’s kitchen, with the cauldron bubbling away?

Tessa Bide Productions have created an interactive adventure children, with colourful animations, guided through by performers Tessa Bide, David Ellington and Gareth Bale. The Anarchist’s Mobile Library empowers children to be masters of their own destinies, to be inspired by literature and to change the stories they see unfolding around them.

Why did we make this show? / Pam ydyn ni’n gwneud y sioe hon?

During rehearsals in August 2019, Tessa wrote a little bit about our aims and interntions for the show, and why we made it!  Read the blog here.

Yn ystod ymarferion ym mis Awst 2019, ysgrifenodd Tessa flog o ryw fath a oedd yn amlinellu ein bwriad ni o gynhyrchu’r sioe, a’r rhesymau pam y creom ni’r sioe. Darllennwch y blog yma.

Research and Development Blog / Blog Ymchwil a Datblygu

While developing the show, Tessa and the team had the opportunity to spend a week browsing the Seven Stories archive where the first ideas for The Anarchist’s Mobile Library were born. Find out about Tessa’s trip to Seven Stories, the National Center for Children’s Books, a partner and collaborator for this show.

Wrth ddatblygu’r sioe, cafodd Tessa a’r tîm gyfle i dreulio wythnos yn pori drwy archif Seven Stories lle eginodd blagur cyntaf Llyfrgell Symudol yr Anarchydd. Darlennwch am drip Tessa i Seven Stories, Canolfan Genedlaethol Llyfrau Plant, sydd yn bartner a chydweithredwr ar gyfer y sioe hon.
