The Magic of Theatre

Using stagecraft to explore everyday social problems: the infringement of children’s and women’s rights, domestic abuse, gender and national inequality.

The Magic of Theatre works alongside a community-based organisation, Jash Kubat, to develop theatre skills and practice amongst disadvantaged group of young people, many of whom have had no experience of performing arts.

During the skills workshops young people will study acting, public speaking, vocal skills, pantomime, gesture and dance. As well as learning social and emotional skills related to tolerance, friendship, equality, respect and free speech.

Through theatre the young people will explore issues of concern for them connected to children’s and women’s rights, domestic abuse, and gender inequality.
