Rusty Frog Youth Theatre - Summer Camp
Rusty Frog Youth Theatre presented a sharing of a work in progress on Saturday 9 May 2015 at Uillinn West Cork Arts Centre, Skibbereen to celebrate the end of this term.
Rusty Frog (formerly WCAC) Youth Theatre students have been working since October to create characters, stories and situations resulting in this presentation which they entitled, Fragments 2. The performance was a site specific promenade, a series of vignettes, through the Uillinn West Cork Arts Centre.
The piece was derived through an improvisation process, with the young actors working in collaboration to find; a context, a story and a script. For research they used newspaper articles, individuals connected with the new building and their own experiences as students of working in the old centre and then moving. With facilitator, Karen Minihan, they created this unique presentation, encompassing their acquired drama skills which was enjoyed by a full audience.
The group have now broken up until later in the summer when Rónán Mac Raois will lead Theatre and Performance Camp A fun fusion of dynamic theatre and dance workshops. The week provides not only acting and dance training, but also unique space for young people to create their own original scenes.
Building confidence, creativity and communication skills.
Dates: Tuesday 4 August to Saturday 8 August. (10am – 1pm for 9-13 years and 2pm – 5pm for 13-18 years).
