Immerse yourself in devising and improvising, physical theatre and contemporary drama. You will create your own performances as part of an ensemble, with the support and direction of experienced theatre professionals, and have the chance to perform in public.
The socially-distanced Youth Company Audition workshop on Saturday 14th November will be a relaxed opportunity for creative and interested 15-21 year-olds to come along and see if we would like to work together in 2020 and beyond.
Volcano Youth Company provides an opportunity for young people to explore their ideas, inspire one another, and discover new skills. The emphasis is on enabling the participants to unlock their creativity through experimentation in performance and to build trust and confidence (in themselves and one another) in a supportive professional environment. We challenge young people with improvisational tasks that require practical, imaginative participation. Volcano aims to equip young performers with the tools and the skills to think and move for themselves with confidence and to embrace risk and vulnerability in a collaborative setting.
Volcano Youth Company is led by Paul Davies, Volcano Theatre’s Artistic Director, and Catherine Bennett, Choreographer and Movement Director at Volcano Theatre in Swansea High Street. You can find out more about Paul and Catherine on our Biographies page.
