Walk a Mile Intergenerational theatre project
Have you got a favourite item of clothing? Does it tell a story? Are you interested in theatre and storytelling? Would you like to make a show alongside young people?
From end of April to mid-July Ripstop Theatre, in conjunction with The Garage and Age UK Norwich, will be running intergenerational theatre sessions exploring how the way we dress reflects how we present ourselves and how we are perceived. We will create sounds and silhouettes working towards a scratch performance at The Garage. Sessions will be at The Garage and another city centre location (transport available if needed). If you think you’d like to take part (it’s free!) or find out more, get in touch with Zannie at firstname.lastname@example.org / 07989 563 404 or Claire Kerrison at Age UK Norwich email@example.com 07786900685
