Whilst the core of our work is about the quality of the creative process rather than judging the work by the quality of the arts product or performance created, our facilitators and participants often create impressive live performances in many of our Performing Arts workshops and projects.
Our live performances are shared with small groups of peers, friends and family in many settings (community venues, schools, colleges, drop-in centres, churches, prisons and arts venues), and we also organise large-scale performance events that are enjoyed by many audiences across the different communities in which we work. Performing live offers participants the chance of challenging themselves, committing to the project and sharing their creativity with other people. The performing process builds confidence and self-esteem and often enables the sharing of important issues with the audiences for wider awareness-raising and increased dialogue within our communities.
Our Performance department includes projects and training across many aspects of dance, drama, music and voice, with some live events and workshops offering a fusion of different live art forms and media.
