I regularly work with young people to produce theatre work. Every summer I run a two week project 'Unusual theatre in unusual spaces' with Z Arts, Hume Garden centre and Venture Arts.
Our productions start with 'skilling up' the young people. Encouraging them to improvise, devise, compose, write, direct, and perform. Using a mix of installation, and audience participation and walkabout form, the final piece is performed at Hulme Garden Centre. Performances have included; 'Alice & Brian in Wonderland', and 'Are you Welcome'.
I am thrilled to be directing 'The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe' with Z arts young performers for the show in May 2019.
