New Vic Borderlines Practitioner Pippa Church looks at what Borderlines has got coming up in 2016…
We had a very hectic run up to Christmas with four different performances in one week – The Peasants are Revolting performed by Strathcross, a long standing group at the theatre of adults with learning difficulties; Crime Catchers performed by Young People’s Theatre Company, a farcical crime watch programme and finally ending with two performances of a pantomime created and performed by local foster children –Oh yes we did!
After a wonderful year we closed the department for two weeks for some much needed rest and a mince pie or two.
Now it’s 2016, a brand new year! What a year it is going to be!
We are hitting the ground running touring our performance of Yizkor performing at local schools and at the New Vic on Monday 25 January.
We are hosting our annual Care Conference on 11 and 12 February for young people heading to work in the care environment giving them the opportunity to catch a glimpse of what they might experience in the work place, speak to people working in caring roles and find out if there are any internships or jobs available for them.
Young People’s Theatre Company are heading to the Brampton Museum and Art Gallery to showcase their work on 13 and 14 February at 2pm in a piece of work created by exploring the artefacts on display at the museum.
We will be touring schools again with our show Love Hurts? exploring domestic violence in young relationships in March.
