The Unusual Stage School - a dynamic new performing arts project     

Disability Arts Cymru are looking for 12 people from all over Wales to take part in a residential stage school from the 13th to the 23rd of June 2006.

• Mime and Movement – learn the rudiments of mime and how to make your body inhabit the characters you play
The Unusual Stage School is open to any Disabled person or Deaf person aged 18 or over living in Wales. You don’t need previous theatre experience but you do need to be serious about performing.  We’ll provide a supportive, relaxed, friendly atmosphere and make sure that everyone’s access requirements are met. You need to be enthusiastic, good at getting on with others and passionate about performing.
We’re holding auditions around the country in early spring. And the course is free!  Interested?  Please contact us for an application pack.
