Watch the performance:
Through the Cloud, I Can See You & The Dramatic Relationship are original plays devised by students from local charity Rowan and directed by Acting Now theatre practitioners Marina Pallares and Rose Clark. After six months of busy weekly sessions, both drama groups have created beautiful performances regarding the subjects of transformation, choices, growing, forgiveness and love.
Rowan is a local charity and arts centre that helps improving the lives of people with learning disabilities through the provision of services and meaningful activities that improve health and wellbeing, as well as break down issues of social exclusion. They run a number of art studios one of them being dedicated for their drama group which is where all the magic happens.
As a part of the Acting Now team, we have had the honour to witness this bunch of creative minds transforming their thoughts into a story that will change the way we see this world. One of these stars includes Emma Anderson whose recent short film The Sky is the Limit has been picked up by festivals around the world. She said in one of her interviews that “Your only limits are what you cannot imagine.” This quote describes perfectly the process we have been involved in making Through the Cloud, I Can See You. To show your support, pin the date down, join us, and you contribute to the continuity of the drama group.
ACTING NOW INCLUSIVE THEATRE PROJECTS:
At Acting Now we believe theatre is a catalyst for social change and should be for anyone and everyone, not limited by physical ability, condition, language or background. Our projects use the language of theatre with disadvantaged groups of varying abilities to enable them to find their voices in a safe and encouraging environment.
Throughout the workshops, we also build social and emotional skills, self-expression and self-esteem and address the stigma attached to certain conditions. The projects culminate in original theatre performances based on the stories that emerge from the group.
