Extant has teamed up with Mousetrap Theatre Projects to offer a weekend of drama activities on 26 and 27 November 2011.
The two-day workshop is offered to six visually-impaired participants between the ages of 11-18 years old attending the Wicked musical Envision days on 9 or 16 November.
The weekend will encourage the young participants to take the stories and themes from the show and release their imaginations, ideas and creativity to create drama work of their own in a safe space facilitated by professional visually impaired tutors from Extant.
Extant is the only UK-based professional performing arts organisation managed by and for visually impaired performing artists. Over the last 14 years Extant has developed unique working methods with visually impaired actors to create exciting physical performance. We have led visually impaired youth drama programmes for primary and secondary schools in London, created youth theatre productions, and run youth drama sessions with the Wallace Collection and Theatre Museum.
