ATT are very lucky to be supporting practitioner Sarah Weston on her PhD through a series of workshops for young women aged 14+ on 

PERFORMING POLITICAL VOICE: 

If you are a girl aged 14+, you are invited to participate in a three-day mini-project in August on political voice and performance.

These 3 days will explore how it feels to express yourself through performance and how theatre can give young people a voice.

Do young people have a voice? Are they allowed to use it?

Using a mixture of drama games, vocal exercises and discussion, the 3 days will be fun, interesting and will help you learn to express yourself.

Please see the downloadable forms for more information on how to apply to take part in this or contact Jessica Egan, Project Manager on 0151 357 2120 or jess@actiontransporttheatre.org  

Sarah explains the project here -

This project will be both beneficial to young people who are interested in performing and want to develop and discover new ways to use their voice on stage, as well as those who often feel frustrated and unable to speak or express themselves in broader society. I will not be teaching them how they can change their voice in order to ‘fit in’, but rather providing a space where we can all feel like our voice matters.

This research project is being conducted at the School of Media and Communication at the University of Leeds, supervised by Professor Stephen Coleman, with assistance from Professor Jane Plastow (Workshop Theatre, School of English). It is supported by Action Transport Theatre.
