We are delighted to be hosting our friends and project partners – the award-winning Company Three for a practice development workshop across two days on 1st & 2nd November. This high quality and impactful training called ‘Making Theatre with Young People’ is for folks working with young people to create and co-create creative and performance-based content.
Company Three are united on a mission to give teenagers the power to tell their own stories and create their own change. They do this as a theatre company of professional theatre makers and led by the ideas of 75 young people aged 11-19.
Their approach to co-creation and using youth theatre a vehicle for social change, personal growth and as a place of community, has long been a source of inspiration to us at Mortal Fools and influenced our practice.
Some members of our team have attended this training before and found it impactful, game changing and a must for theatre makers and folks making performance work with young people. We thoroughly recommend this course, and we are very excited to be bringing it to the North East.
