Following the sold out run of Noughts and Crosses at The Brady Arts Centre in April 2016, which special guest Stormzy attended, we were invited to further explore the themes and ideas within the play, and to create an entirely new piece of work at the Barbican Centre early in June 2016. We will perform the work at the Rich Mix Youth Takeover Festival on July 30th 2016.
This was a brilliant opportunity to work at one of the UK’s most prestigious arts venues, to learn new collaborative theatre-making process, and to connect with a network of talented young practitioners.
The group devised a new performance at the Barbican during the three days of rehearsal. We then performed the work in The Pit Theatre to an invited audience of theatre professionals at 4PM on Wednesday 2nd June.
The dates for the Barbican Laboratory Project were:
Tuesday 31st May 10AM – 6PM
Wednesday 1st June 10AM – 6PM
Thursday 2nd June 10AM – 6PM
This time to experiment allowed us to explore, play and delve into what really mattered to us as a collective. We were then able to channel this into an abstract and powerful piece of theatre.
We got some fantastic feedback and will be using it to further develop the piece into an interactive workshop which will be included in the Rich Mix Youth Takeover Festival on July 30th 2016
We’re happy to announce a partnership with Commercial Break to help support some of our most promising young actors into employment within the creative industries.
Are you 18-24? Do you live in London? Are you either creative or just see the world differently to everyone else? Yes? Then we want you in the advertising industry.
Join Commercial Break to work as part of a pop-up ad agency, working on a real-life creative project from a big-name brand (we’ve worked with the likes of Ubisoft, Beats, and ITV in the past). And you get paid London Living Wage while you do it.
When those two months are over, you head into paid placements at top creative agencies. They last for a minimum of 3 months and are paid at London Living Wage too.
As for who we’re looking for, we don’t care if you’ve got four degrees or no GCSEs, or if you’ve never even heard of the industry; we just want interesting, creative, thought-provoking, problem solvers. If that’s you, then you need to get in touch with us.
