What is Inclusive Theatre? By Ian Linton The main principle of our Inclusive Theatre practice is to encourage participation through Positive Action. By understanding the needs and uniqueness’s of an individual we can ensure that their needs and differences are represented in a positive and productive way. Through this practice the focus of our Inclusive Theatre shifts away from mainstream applied performance-based ideology to a more bespoke performance practice and technique’s structure. This is to enhance the understanding and engagement of the participant, so that they may develop personally and creatively in a holistic way. Like Applied Theatre, Inclusive Theatre is usually delivered in a non-traditional setting and mostly with marginalised communities, bringing to the forefront of the creative process the issues that are endemic within that community. Although Inclusive Theatre and Applied Theatre are similar in nature; where Applied Theatre encourages provocation and change, our Inclusive Theatre promotes the idea that theatre can be anything, and it is the individual that leads the creative process, and ultimately brings with them the characteristics, which leads to a performance or representation of a creative work. Developed through a series of sessions and workshops; Inclusive Theatre focuses on the strengths and uniqueness’s of the participants and achieves a more robust and truthful representation of the creative group. It also helps spectators understand the aspirations and goals of the participants, through creative development and sharing, and the use of drama, movement, and dance, enhances the individual’s physical, creative, and social wellbeing. Tickets: £50 for 10 sessions
