Volcano Youth Company

Wed 09 Jan 2019 to Sun 28 Apr 2019

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.

This season you will get the chance to perform in RawFfest 2019 in Cardiff at the end of April.

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.

All welcome from ages 15-24. We usually meet on Wednesday evenings 6-8pm.

Led by Paul Davies, Volcano Theatre’s Artistic Director, and Catherine Bennett, choreographer and movement director. At Volcano Theatre in Swansea High Street.

To sign up: please email Barbara Sarmiento with your contact details and age. A parent/guardian's consent will be required for under-18s.

Please note current season ends April 2019 - signups after February 2019 will be for the following season.
