For ages 15-24. You'll immerse yourself in devising & improvising, physical theatre and contemporary drama. You will create your own work and have the opportunity to perform it in a supportive professional and public setting.
Volcano Youth Company provides an opportunity for young people to explore their ideas, inspire one another, and discover new skills. The emphasis is on enabling the participants to unlock their creativity through experimentation in performance and to build trust and confidence (in themselves and one another) in a supportive professional environment. We challenge young people with improvisational tasks that require practical, imaginative participation. Volcano aims to equip young performers with the tools and the skills to think and move for themselves with confidence and to embrace risk and vulnerability in a collaborative setting.
Our regular Youth Company sessions start up again in the Autumn! All welcome from ages 15-24. We usually meet on Wednesday evenings 6-8pm.
Workshop with Paul Davies, Volcano Theatre’s Artistic Director, and Catherine Bennett, choreographer and movement director. At Volcano Theatre in Swansea High Street.
