Exciting Theatre work to challenge 16+ young people

The Company 16+ NEW for September 

The aim and ethos of The Company is to create stimulating theatre that centres on the needs of its members through project-based work always ending in some sort of showing, aimed at not just improving their acting ability but also increasing their ability to communicate, work as a team and instil confidence in themselves and others.

Projects like short films, Shakespeare in the park, Monologue and Scene evenings, New writing collaborations with professional theatres, Site specific theatre, Writing and Directing opportunities, working with industry professionals and much more.

The new world needs well qualified individuals but it also needs creative thinkers who are confident, articulate and willing to take risks.  According to UNESCO the number of people gaining formal educational qualifications in the next 25 years will exceed the gross total since the beginning of history.  As a result the value of degrees is tumbling.  Something more is needed to edge ahead of the crowd. 

The role of education

Individual: To develop the individual talents and sensibilities
Cultural: To deepen understanding of the world
Economic: To provide the skills required to earn a living and be economically productive.

Many graduates lack the creativity abilities that the world urgently need. 

What ArtsEd and The Company does:

A place that gives young people freedom to take risks
It’s a place that allows young people to develop and discover their own natural intelligence
It’s is a place where there are no ‘stupid’ questions and no ‘right’ answers
It is a place that values difference, the lively, the dynamic, the surprising and the playful.

The latest research suggests that to get ahead of the game in today’s competitive job market, young people should be investing more time in enhancing soft skills such as communication, teamwork and leadership. A recent survey found that 95% of UK senior managers regard soft skills as equally or more important than exam results alone.

The rehearsal room can be the best place to learn communication skills, team working and resilience and gives the opportunity for negotiation and discussion. All valuable skills.

Young people must not miss the opportunity to develop essential skills and differences that will set them apart from others applying for the same jobs as them.

The Company is led by Director Rob Hadden who has been teaching at Arts Ed since 2016, as part of the Arts Ed Extra team and last year Directed the NT Connections Production of ‘Stuff’. He is a professional Actor, Director, Producer and Practitioner having worked with lots of Theatre companies including the one he formed, LAGO Theatre, and producing their 5-star Rep Season last year.

The inaugural production will be a Promenade performance of ‘Twelfth Night’ by William Shakespeare. Directed by Rob Hadden, it will be a genre he refers to as ‘Game Theatre’, where the idea is that the audience are fully emerged into the piece and have to find things from scenes, solve puzzles and spot clues as well as spy on characters and much more. Rob worked on a game theatre production of ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’ with Creation Theatre in 2016 and 2017 in Oxford and London and has since devised and directed a game theatre version of ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’ and looks forward to pulling people into the world of Twelfth Night for more fun and mischief.

As a musician (piano, clarinet, violin) she has performed at the Royal Albert Hall, St John Smith Square, and across Europe. She currently teaches 1:1 singing at Arts Ed (excelerate course), Urdang (accelerate course), and NLPAC. She has also had many years’ experience leading choirs in various schools around London, and she ran the community voice at Arts Ed for 6 months last year before having a break to go on tour. She is very much looking forward to returning to another term of happy music making with the community of Chiswick. The title of this term is Raise Your Voice, and we will be making our way through a diverse and fun collection of musical theatre repertoire, designed to get your week off to a joyful start.
