We have a wide range of events running throughout the year, with something for everyone. If you have any questions about our events please contact us.
Drama workshop for all children aged 6-10yrs with Bristol based actor David Ellington.
To see more about Davids work please take a look at his blog here http://www.extraordinarybodies.org.uk/team/david-ellington/
David landed his first experience of acting in the Deaf Festival at Swan Theatre in 1997. Since then, his acting career has flourished. David’s roles have been diverse, including film, theatre and television drama, and BSL presenting.
David is also a director of VS1 Productions. His recent award winning TV drama is Life Out There. David has always enjoyed challenging and creative works including film making projects and theatre workshop projects and has also supported DRoots for deaf theatre productions and ALRA, in running theatre courses for Deaf students.
The workshop aims to:
Share individual experiences in warm up activities, including games.
Encourage the participants to explore and understand the themes and character portraits from extracted stories from ‘Scrooge’, and then improvise on character’s development.
If time allows, to create signed song ‘White Christmas’
It is essential that all of our events and activities are enjoyable, welcoming and inclusive to all and we rely on all of our families who attend to ensure this is the case. For all our family events parents will be expected to be responsible for their children at all times to ensure we have a respectful, safe and inclusive environment. If there are any concerns or anyone does not feel this is the case please approach either staff or trustees who will always be available at all events.
If it is your first time attending an event or you don’t know anyone else attending, please let the organisers know and they will link you with another parent as part of our buddy system.
If you are available to work at an event, please email Helen at email@example.com, stating the event you are interested in.
