AFASIC Workshop, June 2014
Stage Beyond were delighted to work with a group of young people aged 10 - 13 from AFASIC NI. AFASIC supports parents of children with speech and language issues. (http://afasicnorthernireland.org.uk/)
This week long workshop introduced the group to theatre games and performance in a safe and creative space. The group were encouraged to explore communication closely and to experience drama and theatre as a fun, inclusive and accessible activity. Mind the Gap Theatre Company - January 2014
In January 2014 we were honoured to welcome Tim Wheeler, Artistic Director of Mind the Gap Theatre Company (http://www.mind-the-gap.org.uk/) for a week long residential workshop.
Our workshops focused on the use of Forum Theatre as a way to explore issues affecting young people with learning disabilities, with a particular emphasis on relationships.
As the week progressed we learned new skills and formed new relationships with one of the foremost theatre companies of today. We look forward to working with Mind the Gap again in the near future! Echo Echo Dance Workshop
On 20th and 21st May we enjoyed two fabulous dance sessions with Echo Echo Dance company. Led by Ayesha and Esther, the group created several different dance pieces that we will use in our production Walter's Story, in June 2013. From Elvis to Jedward, we danced the day away!:: 1 2 3 ::
