Make 2016 your year to get involved in your local arts scene, go to shows, watch plays, listen to community radio, support your friends and your neighbours and just get amongst it, writes LAURIE MAY (pictured).

 

Come close

Students at Acacia Hill School were working this week with guest artist Kat Worth to develop their theatre project, Close to Me.

Through talking, writing, drawing and dancing the students had
arrived at a theme for the piece of personal space – who to let come
close, when and how, how to set boundaries.

Their thinking  started with defining what's important and
precious to them. The answer was family, friends, and home and the work
grew from there.

Kat devised tasks to get their performance ideas flowing, for
example, by creating their own 'countries' on the floor, bounded by
masking tape, then inviting people in and pushing them out. Pictured: Kat Worth with, front row, Chris and Tiffany, and at rear, Jasmine and Harishma. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
