Duologue

In January 2016, Mary Hare School and The Watermill Theatre joined forces to create a piece of theatre featuring young performers from both organisations. The group quickly formed into a creative and close-knit ensemble, becoming “the highlight of my week” for several members!

‘Duologue’: a conversation on stage between two, literally meaning ‘two speak’…

In September 2016 we launched Duologue, a new group that welcomed those same young performers back and invites other young people and adults from the Deaf and hearing impaired community to join us.

Whether you are D/deaf yourself, or CODA (children of deaf adults), connected to the Deaf world in another way, learning signing, or just interested, we’d love to meet you. You must be 12 years or older but you don’t need to have any experience of performing, just an enthusiasm to create theatre with new people.

Tuesday evenings, 7pm to 8.30pm at Arlington Arts Centre, Mary Hare, Newbury RG14 3BQ
First session: Tuesday 12 September
Half term break (no sessions): Tuesday 17 October, Tuesday 24 October and Tuesday 31 October
Last session: Tuesday 5 December

Familiarisation Visits
For many of us, trying something new, with new people, in a new place, can be daunting. Our familiarisation visits are a chance to meet Lixi, the group facilitator, and have a short tour of the theatre and facilities with her. If you would like to book a visit, please contact Lixi (details below).

 

How much will it cost?
Thanks to generous funding from Greenham Trust we are not charging for this course but if you would like to make a suggested donation of £50 towards our community outreach programme, we value your support.
