The shows feature sketches and plays by Arty Party alongside music by some fantastic learning disabled bands including Dele Fakoya, The Fish Police, and Beat Express.

Each week for the next three weeks we will be posting up a new show on here.

Please listen to the shows all the way through , there is some great music and much more.

The best place is by the fire

No session today due to all the snow and ice. But the space by the roaring log fire is in demand.

Change (version 1)

If we don’t show emotions it gives the audience a chance and space to create their own pictures and ideas about what is going on and the relationships between us.

Not acting is a big as skill as acting.

Many thanks to ‘The frantic assembly book of devising’ for some of the ideas behind making this work. This is a simple , no edit, one shot version of the piece a more complex version will follow.

St Valentine’s scripts

As a group we love creating our own original work but we feel, in order to increase our chances of gaining employment as performers and actors, we need to become good at reading and learning lines from scripts. Here are a couple of love themed, one minute plays that we have rehearsed for you to listen to.

A post from Media and Performance trainee Nathan Campbell

My name is Dread Rhime aka Nathan Campbell

 I and I write poetry about my Life

and the way I and I see life.

 I keep a daily diary to

Express myself

I am a rasta man

And I and I use my drum to talk to the whole world

 And  use my poetry to connect with life and everyday life and problems with it.

 And dats whats happening with me at dis moment.

What I want in my future is,

 To make my album on cd

and to join a rasta drumming with other rastafarians and me.

 I and I want to record a demo.

 Blood and fire I want to meet new friends.

 I want to become a professional actor

 If I can or not , This is me, this is I and I
