MULTilingualism YOUTH THEATRE
If you’re aged 13-17, from North London, speak more than 1 language and you’re interested in performing arts and theatre-making, why not sign up to this exciting online version of Hampstead Theatre and Creative Multilingualism’s youth theatre?
Working with professional theatre artists you will play theatre games, take part in drama exercises, develop your creative skills and make new performance material which will be filmed, edited and shared online.
As well as sharing your performance skills - whether acting, movement, music - and other creative talents, we will use English and elements of other languages to celebrate the multilingualism of London and the UK.
We’ll meet on Zoom every Thursday from 15 October to 17 December 2020 (not 29 October) from 17:15 to 18:15.
The sessions will be led by Daniel Tyler-McTighe and Hampstead Theatre's Resident Assistant Director, Lizzie Manwaring. Daniel has created work with, by and for young people and community groups at the national theatres of Spain and Korea, Warsaw Palace of Culture and many UK settings. His many youth theatre directing credits include the world premiere of Girls Like That by Evan Placey, 1984 and The Ramayana. His professional theatre-making has included: Shakespeare adaptations at Shanghai International Experimental Theatre Festival, Almagro Festival in Spain, Bristol Shakespeare Festival and Madrid Fringe Festival, the Arts Council England-funded tour of a new play about his Anglo-Indian family’s history Between the Two, Rent, Little Shop of Horrors, and Fantastic Mr Fox.
And, the best bit - the project is completely FREE.
If you’re interested in being part of the this exciting project please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
About creative multilingualism
Creative Multilingualism is a four-year research programme investigating the interconnection between linguistic diversity and creativity. It aims to release the creative potential of languages, shine a spotlight on the UK’s hidden multilingualism and celebrate the many benefits of language learning. The programme is funded by the AHRC's Open World Research Initiative.
The exciting Multilingual Performance Project (MPP) showcases and celebrates the multilingual nature of schools and demonstrates how multilingualism can interact creatively with teaching in the classroom, promoting both taught languages and the use of community languages.
