Women & Theatre’s Community Performance Club involves creative, uplifting activities for people over 50 & carers in Brandwood & surrounding areas. Group sessions encourage participants to be active, sociable, learn new skills & collaborate to deliver performance work. The project aims to promote wellbeing, strengthen community connections & reduce isolation. Main group activity takes place on Mondays, 3-5pm with some additional contact in the week as needed. Our next 6-week course begins on Monday 15 June 2020. Main group activity currently takes place via Zoom. We are working with local organisation Digikick who will provide support to help participants get set up with Zoom and join us.
The focus of our work is currently comedy, with courses delivered by W&T’s Artistic Director Janice Connolly (aka stand-up star, Mrs Barbara Nice.)
The project originally involved face-to-face courses & live events at venues in Brandwood such as The Brandwood Centre & The Hub, Hazelwell. During these challenging times however, we have taken our project online; delivering 6-week courses via Zoom which culminate in the sharing of a digital piece of comedy work.
Although working remotely, we are still targeting residents of Brandwood & surrounding areas of south Birmingham.
