Pavia Rubra has many characteristics.
The quest to discover “who is Pavia Rubra” was driven through a series of ACTs with pupils on the Estate. The ACTS merged performance , poetry , script writing and planting in a new public space.
asking pupils at the end of each ACT ” do any of you know who is Pavia Rubra”
The responses and the character that was formed included:
– Pavia Rubra is an ancient organisation of growers
– Pavia Rubra is each and everyone of us.
