This is a two year project focusing on making community theatre with older people. The project shares learning between the staff of six European companies, around the different methods and approaches used to engage older people in learning through community theatre projects. We are working again with our partners from the Coast project; acta, UK, Rotterdams Wijktheater (Netherlands), Expedition Metropolis, and with new partners Sering (Belgium) and Devadlo bez Domovo (Slovakia). Each company work with a group of older people to develop a piece of theatre. Each of the partners will tour their show to another partner country. Grodzki Theatre Association is preparing a new production with its inclusive group of deaf people, actors with learning disabilities and disadvantaged people called ‘Grodzki Theatre Junior’. A gathering at the end of the two year period will bring together all six companies to share learning from the process through discussions, workshops and presentations of work.
