We have a track-record of creating excellent work with older people including productions toured to lunch/social clubs and sheltered housing venues, and inter-generational participatory projects.
Funded by The Arts Council and London Borough of Hackney the project aims to enable older and younger residents to get to know each other through participatory arts projects.
Our core group of active older people have created their own version of Cinderella. The production has been toured to older people’s lunch and social clubs and residential homes taking the joy of live performance to those who would not usually have the opportunity. Whilst on tour we have gathered stories from our audiences to create a short film with Bhavesh Hindocha, as part of an installation created by Pip Nash. This installation can be found at: Clapton Library 3rd – 8th December Homerton Library 10th – 15th December Dalston CLR James Library 17th December – 4th January
We have also performed to groups of young people and their families and are running workshops with local schools. In July 2019 we will be building on this work creating a performance made by our mature actors for Primary Schools and asking our Youth Theatres to create performances to be shared in residential homes.
During the summer holidays we will create a show with older and younger performers working together.
