In Beyond young people are moving towards the end of their high school education or perhaps they’ve already moved onto college, university or work. Whatever they are doing we want to help them to create positive pathways to get them where they want to be. We’ll help give young people the tools to successfully promote themselves in preparation for further education or a workplace. We’ll continue to help build confidence, presentation skills and self-esteem and are happy to offer support to young people preparing for auditions or inter-views.
We want young people to think about why they want to create theatre, what it can be used to say and why it matters. We’ll be encouraging them to go to the theatre and where possible we’ll give them the space to discuss what they’ve seen and promote critical analysis skills.
We’ll continue to work on core skills – voice, movement and acting by exploring a variety of theatre styles and methods as well as looking at different genres and playwrights. We’ll take inspiration from things that interest them – from texts, to stories, to music, to real life events. We’ll look in more detail at a whole variety of texts and undertake detailed character study and scene work. We’ll be looking at different playwrights and exploring characters and scenes from a variety of plays. Our analysis of text will support the work being done in school. We’ll continue to develop improvisation skills and explore different acting techniques. We’ll further develop devising skills and look to other companies and artists for inspiration. We’ll give them opportunities to create their own work, to take on different theatre roles and to collaborate with each other to create performances. If young people show an interest in a particular area we’ll do our best to nurture it.
We’ll continue to develop ensemble building skills as well as concentration, focus and trust. We’ll en-courage them to take creative ownership over the work they create and learn to collaborate with each other to develop work.
