AUGUST012 Theatre Company is looking for older people to participate in WISE

Posted Friday, December 20th, 2013

August012 Theatre Company is currently looking for older participants for WISE, a European Union project that similtaneously takes place in Italy, Germany and Poland.

The project aims at creating and staging a theatre play based on older peoples past political engagements and their views of it today.

August 012 Theatre Compant will lead the project in Wales.

They are currently looking for older people who were politically engaged in the past and would be happy to meet, share their story through workshops and to be part of the project.

They want to bring together people who have fought for their political ideas in Wales to create together, and with professional actors, a piece of theatre that weaves their stories together.

They would like to meet participants between now and Febrauary with workshops taking place at the end of February / early March.  A more intensive week is due to take place at the end of March.

The material gathered will then be re-worked with a group of international writers and dramaturgs and made into a script in June/July 2014.  August 012 will stage and perform the final piece with professional actors and older participants in October 2014.

If you are interested in taking part and would like more details they would like to meet you as soon as possible.
