Workshop with TheatreState and Young Artist Activists
- Venue: Meeting Room
More Information on Workshop with TheatreState and Young Artist Activists
Working with Writer and Director Tess Seddon (whose unlikely journey into politics in 2017 inspired new musical Say Yes to Tess), a group of creative and passionate young activists from Seacroft are on an access-all-areas journey into UK politics – visiting Parliament, meeting MPs, interviewing high-profile politicians and inspiring activists and galvanising peers to ask: what needs to change? The group are documenting their journey through the creation of a podcast, animated shorts and socials.
TheatreState and the Young Artist Activists now invite you to take part in a creative workshop that explores their political journey and the artistic process it is shaping. You don’t need to know anything about politics or podcasting to take part. You just need to be prepared to play some games, have some discussions, meet some people, create some content and get inspired to change the world.
This is a TheatreState project in collaboration with Chapel FM and Shout Out UK. Funded by Arts Council England with support from Leeds Playhouse and Camden People’s Theatre.
This event is part of our Furnace Festival 2021 – a week-long celebration of new work by new artists.
A signed performance is the usual full production using either the creative use of sign integrated into the performance or a British Sign Language Interpreter on stage interpreting the show for D/deaf attendees.Audio Described
Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attendees. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the customer can wear a headset and listen to a live description of the action on stage.Relaxed Performance
A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities. This may include extra lighting, additional wheelchair spaces and the freedom to move to alternative seating if required.Dementia-Friendly Performance
Dementia friendly performances are for all audiences. The theatre experience is enhanced for people living with dementia and their supporters, with adaptations to front of house service, the show and pre-show information packs. Additional dementia-aware staff, quiet spaces, clear signage and visual markers, sound and lighting adjustments and flexible seating options all help to create a supportive, shared experience.Sing Along

Parent & Baby Performance
A Parent and Baby performance enables parents to attend the theatre with their baby (under 12 months). We make small adaptations to the lighting and sound effects, including keeping the auditorium lights slightly raised. The seating is unallocated and there is a relaxed attitude to noise.
