DumbWise Academy at The Garage

We are pleased to announce the Arts Council England have supported The Garage’s summer Actor Musicians Academy with a Grant for The Arts Funding. Young Musicians who also have skills in acting will work under the direction of DumbWise actor musician practitioners to produce a brand new show ‘Clockwork’ based on the novel by Phillip Pullman

The young people will explore the art form ‘actor-musicianship’ in which the performers work with their instruments on stage with music forming an integral part of the devising process and performance. This art form can produce gritty, interesting an exciting performance work. We are now looking to recruit 15 young people who would like to take part in the project. You will need to be aged 14 – 25 years old, have existing skills in both music (any instrument or vocal skills) and also have an interest or experience in acting. The project takes place at The Garage with devising and rehearsals every day from 10am-3.30pm 14-25 August and will culminate with 2 performances in The Garage Theatre on Friday 25 August at 6pm and Saturday the 26 August at 4pm.

The cost for participation is £100 for the two weeks which is subsided by the Arts Council Grant for the Arts funding (bursary place available). To find out more click here or to book on to the project call The Garage on 01603 283382.
