What's going on?
Love and Information
What a busy couple of months that concluded with the, Love and Information Scotland tour (14th -23rd Nov) with the BA Performance students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. To find out more about the play visit our Youtube channel - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNGzH0zbXrI&t=46s
Deaf Youth Theatre and Deaf Performance Skills
Following on from the successful, Summer Project performance, Shhhh. Deaf Youth Theatre have spent the last couple of months preparing for their Christmas Sharing, A Christmas (sort of) Carol. These original sketches inspired by the book are devised by the group into humorous, surprising and exhilarating theatrical treats.
Deaf Performance Skills delivered in collaboration with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is proving to be the breeding ground for even more young D/deaf theatre talent. Many of the participants are now looking to apply for the BA Performance in British Sign Language and English course. Applications are being accepted NOW! - https://www.rcs.ac.uk/courses/ba-performance/
Over the last few months Solar Bear has been involved in a collaboration with the National Theatre Scotland, Birds of Paradise and Sign Arts. The aim of this programme is to give Registered Sign Language Interpreters who are currently working in Scottish theatres the opportunity to develop their performance skills by meeting those involved in the creation & performance of productions whilst attending specialist masterclasses led by industry professionals.
Well, what can you say about a secret project?? I can tell you that Solar Bear is making plans for a number of projects as we look to deliver on our promise to forge new theatrical languages and ways of storytelling that are more open, expressive and daring. Stay tuned for some exciting announcements in 2018.
Lastly and by no means least, have a Merry Christmas.
