Following our show High Times and Dirty Monsters, Graeae returns to Liverpool Everyman to share approaches to creative access in theatre-making and performance, and opportunities to embed it into classroom settings.
Creative Access: From Classroom to Stage
Suitable for: Teaching staff, support workers, theatre practitioners and creative workshop facilitators
Graeae’s Creative Learning Director Jodi-Alissa Bickerton will lead a session that will:
– Embrace the wider social and political context of disability in terms of Graeae’s driving need and ambitions on and off stage, setting the foundations for change
– Share Graeae’s aesthetics of access and inclusive approaches through acting exercises and a practical insight into our productions
– Spark creative solutions from planning to delivery, making classes, processes and performances excitingly accessible to a wide range of Deaf and disabled young people
– Offer collaborative space for you to share good practice and celebrate in the creative ambitions we hold together
– Gift each other with tangible ideas and support for our creative next steps
Practicality level (1-4): 3 – This session includes a mix of practical creative activity, some group discussion and a short presentation.
