Extraordinary Bodies In Skylight!

January is a very exciting month with a lot high profile visitors.  This Saturday we welcomed Extraordinary Bodies as we began a partnership project with them .  An inclusive group of Skylight community members met two Extraordinary Bodies performers to begin playing and creating work towards being part of the “What am I worth” performance at the Lowry.  This show will be part of the Lowry’s Festival 53.  

Our group loved the playful and exploratory workshop with acrobatics, singing, sharing stories and getting to know each other!  Milton and Rebecca you Rock!

“What a wow of weekend” Martine Bradford 

“An inclusive strong group looking forward to being part of the show” Participant

Frantic Assembly Visit Skylight Circus Arts!

Frantic Assembly at Skylight Circus Arts!

 

This month our Spotlight Troupe welcomed Frantic Assembly to Skylight!  Frantic Assembly are one of the UK’s most successful and best loved theatre companies.  Frantic’s distinctive creative approach has influenced contemporary theatre making and foregrounded the use of movement directors and choreographers in new dramatic works.  What a treat!

 

Maggie Ann Bain led our masterclass which introduced Frantic’s devising techniques.   We are planning to use our new skills in the next show which is coming soon!

This project was made possible by Arts Council England’s National Lottery project funding.  Thank you to National Lottery Players!
