Open Theatre open up about the activities and techniques they use in their creative workshops for young people

While the lockdown continues, we’re thrilled that our friends at Open Theatre Company have been finding creative ways to continue with their work. Every week, they’ll be creating new “Open Theatre Opens Up” videos offering an insight into the way they work, and as one of our long-term partners, we wanted to help spread the word by sharing what they’ve created.

Based in Coventry, Open Theatre works with young people with learning disabilities, using mostly non-verbal techniques. You can find out more about their work here.

Following our temporary closure in March, their show The Twisted Tale of Hansel and Gretel was one of the first to be cancelled, but they’ve responded quickly to the situation, and we hope that you enjoy seeing what they’ve been up to during lockdown as much as we have.
