Finally a seminar that shared current participatory practice & encouraged all to discuss – Jonathon Petherbridge, London Bubble, on first acta foundation seminar.
The seminar will provide an opportunity to consider how different companies and practitioners approach making theatre with children and adults working together.This type of work is growing in popularity and importance and the seminar will examine key issues and practical solutions:
What are the benefits of bringing different ages together to make theatre, what are the pitfalls, and how can you deal with them?
How do you find a theatre language that young people and older people can both understand, and a place where communication can take place?
What is the best way of involving and valuing older people in this work?
