New Youth Theatre for BS13
an Arts Council England funded project
We are hugely proud to be running an Arts Council England funded Youth Theatre for young people living in Hartcliffe & Withywood. It starts next month, Tuesdays after school. Attendees will also gain an Arts Award qualification.
These sessions will give the young people a chance to have fun playing games, explore ideas that matter to them, share their own interests and skills and develop new skills too. It will build their confidence and self-esteem.
We run our youth theatre projects organically. This means that each youth theatre session we run is shaped by the group of young people we work with. We use our skills as theatre makers to shape their ideas and give voice to their opinions. We do not have a set programme of activities that the young people must fit in with. We shape our offer to fit in with the young people in front of us. This approach makes our youth theatres incredibly empowering.
We are aware that for many young people, the word 'theatre' is a strange and unfamiliar idea. We don't need the young people to have had any previous experience in theatre or drama. We are interested in shaping our sessions to respond to their ideas and root the work within performance conventions they are more familiar with. For example, we have used dance videos, computer games and spoken word/rap as starting points for creating very successful pieces of theatre with young people. And we've plenty more ideas if none of these appeal.
£30 for the whole project, with flexible payment options.
