Theatreworks Partnerships opens up the National Theatre and its work through a variety of participatory activities. It works within the Southbank local community and with community groups that operate within neighboring boroughs. Each project is delivered by National Theatre in-house creative teams and specialist Theatreworks facilitators.
1) Theatreworks Partnerships worked with a group of 18 to 25 year old NEET’s from London and Quadrant Housing and ELBA on a project based on the National Theatre’s production of Moon on a Rainbow Shawl. Drawing on the themes from the production the group engaged in rehearsal room techniques to develop their self confidence and communication skills.
‘We’ve had people who have come along who are significantly shy who have a lot of confidence issues. Who over the 3 days have transformed into confident young adults who are able to assert themselves and communicate...which has been wonderful’ L&Q Key Worker
2) A partnership with the Maudsley Hospital resulted in a number of older (70+) psychiatric out patients producing a devised response to War Horse. Working with the War Horse creative teams and Theatreworks facilitators over a series of weeks the project culminated in a live performance in front of an invited audience.
‘We’ve done a tremendous amount during the project and it’s been exhilarating’. Participant, aged 79
