On a most basic level, Pumpkin Jigsaw is a bunch of people based around London who love drumming and making noise. Some are close friends , some are strangers who immediately feel welcomed into the family vibe. We realised we wanted to expand our horizons and challenge ourselves – we put on projects with community groups, collaborated with other artists, composed new music and experimented with movement and costume. Out of these projects an ethos focused around community and collective is emerging. Central to this is fun, sharing and expression; and taking these ideas to the streets and parks and public places where people and communities coexist but rarely combine. Our dream is to grow and diversify enough to one day put on a huge carnival style extravaganza of our own which celebrates all sorts of art forms and communities and shares them with the streets of London.
