Solar Bear welcome Romanian Erasmus students

Solar Bear welcome Romanian Erasmus students


We are delighted to welcome our Erasmus + students from Special Technological High School “Beethoven”, Craiva in Romania to Glasgow for a week of workshops with Solar Bear Deaf Youth Theatre (DYT).


This is the second stage of our project following on from the week in June when Catalin Baicus came over to lead workshops here for DYT members. This time 15 students along with Catalin and other Romanian staff members will participate in workshops led by Solar Bear Artistic Director Gerry Ramage along with Catalin Baicus and Filomela Salahoru. These will be held at the Scottish Youth Theatre building, Brunswick St.

There will be a visit to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland to visit the students on the BA in Performance in BSL & English. Social activity will include a visit to the People’s Palace and a tour round Glasgow.

In April next year the DYT students will go to Romania and will take part in workshops and learn about Romanian cultural heritage.

The partners are: Solar Bear, Asociatia Window Romania & Teatrul Naţional Craiova

Can you help?

A student who accompanied Catalin Baicus in June 2015 has been accepted to study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland on the new BA in Performance in BSL & English. Petre Dobre is a very talented young deaf actor. This course will be doubly challenging for him not only as the course is delivered in British Sign Language but also raising funding in Romania has been difficult. If you would like to help sponsor Petre please contact Victoria Paulo at for more information. Any contribution, however small, would help Petre with his studies.
