Radical Acts - Common Wealth Theatre

— The Trinity Centre
A 2 day practical workshop exploring performance for powerful social change
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Join Rhiannon White and Fahadi Muluku for this unique workshop.

Art can help us see ourselves, understand who we are and where we come from. It can help us recognise the power we have, it can give us agency. It can help us create radical acts.

Working from the starting point of who we are, where we come and what we have to say about the world. Common Wealth will share their practice, tools and experiences in co-creation with communities, artists and audiences.

"We aim to make theatre for people who don’t usually think it’s for them, we’re bored of theatre being for the middle classes and those that can afford it – We seek out places to stage our work that are right in a community; a residential house, a boxing gym, places where people who might not go to the theatre might come to instead. We genuinely believe in theatre as an art form and the power it has. We think this should belong to everyone – as audience, participants and as protagonists.”

Common Wealth are based in Bradford and Cardiff and make award-winning work, across the UK and internationally, that encompasses electronic sound, new writing, visual design and verbatim theatre. Their work is political and contemporary – based in the present day – and addresses concerns of our times.

This workshop is capped at 15 places and runs from 11am - 4pm on Sat 9th and Sun 10th October
