Ensemble Community Theatre Outreach Project

Prime Cut Productions is a leading Belfast based Theatre Company.  As part of their ongoing work they are running a number of projects engaging with different communities across Belfast.  Their next project, “Ensemble” is a three month project, which will work with different communities from across Belfast, exploring the stories of participants, sharing the similarities and differences that they have with other members of their own communities.  After the initial work within each area, there will be the potential for those who are interested to participate in 2 further workshops, alongside other people from across the city, with a showcasing of some of the topics and issues that have been explored during the project.

The project is open to all people.  No previous theatre experience is required.  There are a number of ways that people can participate in the project.  Maybe you have a story to tell, want to write something, to act or find out more about working behind the scenes.  However you participate, you will have fun.

The workshops will be tailored to the participants, with the main objective being to create a space where people can come together and share.  The project will be a great opportunity for you to work with other people from your area, finding out about them and the area that you live in.

The initial aim is to hold 2 workshops in each area, each lasting 1.5 to 2 hours.  This will then be followed by the opportunity to participate in workshops that will be held in the MAC, Belfast’s new Arts Centre in the Cathedral Quarter in March, with a small showcase of work at the end of the second workshop.
