About the Elders
We build community by bringing people together in a celebration of their creative practice and identities, and create opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to develop their talents and creative abilities in an innovative, challenging and supportive environment.
A project aimed at over 65s to come together and reflect their personal generational history; echoing the voices of their elders. Members research key moments in their grandparents lives and consider what moment they would like to create as a piece of theatre!
This project allows participants to create a unique experience, inhabiting the characters of their own grandparents.
The structure of the project is:
- Researching grandparents
- Devising scenes with expert facilitation of Andrea Scott theatremaker / director
- Writing with the guidance of a professional playwright
- Scenes will be performed as a work in progress at dlr Mill Theatre Studio
