Community projects

Theatre Exchange’s projects can be extremely varied. Whilst much of our work is developed for children and young people, we have also created work for and with communities, creating culturally resonant theatre within a community setting. These include:

  • An outdoor performance celebrating the story and myths of Guy Fawkes for the Surrey Lantern Festivals in conjunction with Strange Cargo.
  • A site-specific piece of celebrating gardening, working alongside the Royal Horticultural Society at The Hampton Court Flower Show.
  • The ‘Halloween Walk’, an installation and interactive performance piece developed for 3 locations in Surrey.
  • An interactive theatre piece devised as part of Arts Partnership’s “Forgotten Festivals”, and coinciding with Lingfield’s Jubilee street party celebrations.

Other projects include the National Young Playwrights Festival, a very successful initiative funded by ACE, championed by David Woods. Winning entries tour to venues across the South East and London including the New Wimbledon Theatre. In 2010 Theatre Exchange was commissioned by the British Council to develop a participatory programme for the World Shakespeare Festival.

Other clients and partners include Surrey County Council, Hampshire County Council, Richmond Theatre, Creative Partnerships, Arts Partnership Surrey, Farnham Maltings, Sutton Borough Council, Woking Borough Council, RC Sherriff Rosebriars Trust, Arts Council England.

 

Children and families

Theatre Exchange has a wealth of experience working with children, young people and their families.

From special one day events, such as the Olympic Games torch relay event “Big Village Sports Day”, in Bletchingley, during 2012, to week long performance courses working with our partners at The Hazlitt theatre in Maidstone, we have worked on projects large and small.

We have been regularly employed to develop and deliver work for Borough and District Councils across the South East, from ½ day workshops to week long performance courses, as part of their holiday programmes, these have included commissions from Elmbridge Borough Council, Guildford Borough Council, Mole Valley District Council and Woking Borough Council, to name a few!

Our experience of working with young people has also led us to be part of special careers events for school leavers, colleague students and other young people, helping them to understand how Theatre in Education works, the career possibilities are and how we, as a company, work with and help progress young people working in this area of expertise.
