OUR LONDON PROJECT

Our Black Dog Theatre Creation has now teamed up with the West Euston Partnership and the Camden People's Theatre to offer a new project in Camden, London and we couldn't be anymore excited. Our group is open to adults suffering from poor confidence, self-esteem or isolation. We are now also welcoming family, friends or anyone who cares and supports those affected to join us to.

BLACK DOG THEATRE CREATION LONDON NEWS

We did it! Despite Covid:19 and lockdown, we were determined to continue running the project. Not only did we carry on meeting via Zoom, but we recorded our first ever Audio play: “Alice, through the looking glass.” With the support of The Arts Council, we were also able to extend the project another three more months so that we could continue to offer our members support during these unsettling times. The project has been a HUGE success and we’ve had nothing but positive feedback from everyone. We already have several new members wanting to join us in our next project in 2021 where we hope to work with Artist Jacob Anderson and the Puppet Soup Theatre Company before creating a performance of Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl.

PUPPETRY FOR WELLBEING COURSE

We recently joined forces with The Puppet Soup Theatre Company and Artist Jacob Anderson to deliver a free 3-Week course online via Zoom. The course was designed to use the creative arts to support people stuck at home during the lockdown. Members from both Black Dog groups worked with members of our Story Box and Unscene Women’s group as well as members from The Puppet Soup projects. We even had someone joining us from the US. The project was a wonderful success, and we were taught how to make our own puppets using materials found at home and how to design and make our own pop up theatre model.

ZOOM WORKSHOPS WORKING A TREAT

Since February we have been continuing to run our workshops safely online via Zoom. We've been working on a new mini project called "Every picture tells a story" where we have been exploring how pictures can be used to inspire stories and performances. We've created a mini series of performances of stories written by our members.
