Back2Back Theatre Company

Back2Back Theatre Company

After the summer programme in the community, school workshops will soon be starting back with an exciting new project at Ynysawdre School with Back2Back Theatre Company. We will be working towards a One Act Festival focusing around the theme of Image and what is means to be ‘perfect.’ The festival will include short performances, both scripted and devised by the young people to reflect the pressures on young today to ‘fit in.’ The production will also include movement, multi media, images and music, to create an enjoyable yet powerful performance.

Other drama developments include more emotional health workshops working with young people across the Bridgend Borough, new dates and venues for the tour of our play The Long Way Down (adapted form a book by Nick Hornby), and launching new emotional health resource packs which we have created with local young people, to be used in schools to encourage dialogue and awareness of many issues affecting young people’s lives.
