Autumn term 2018:
The first half of the Autumn term has been a blast, we have been getting to know each other and trying new ideas that help develop everyone’s performance skills.
It’s so important when making work that you create a safe environment in which everyone can feel free to explore and experiment, it has been a joy to witness all the members, from day one, be so supportive of each other. Theatre has a unique ability to allow strangers to come together and connect in a way that removes all barriers and accepts, no embraces all our differences and that’s coming through loud and clear with VYT.
So far, we have explored puppetry, emotion, wordless storytelling, ensemble theatre, to name a few things and over the next few weeks, we will be delving into script work ahead of choosing a text to be our first performance next April.
We still have some places left so if you want to develop your theatre practice, in what is a highly supportive environment then please do get in touch.
