Are you interested in creating original theatre? Being part of a diverse group of performers? Provoking thought and promoting change?

Chickenshed Kensington and Chelsea are looking for people to join their Adult Theatre Ensemble to create an original and thought provoking piece of theatre. Poles Apart will be an ensemble performance piece created by the cast under the guidance of an experienced team of theatre practitioners from Chickenshed.

I love being part of a company where its members completely shape its work

Through a series of workshops and discussions, the cast will explore questions around the seemingly polarised views of our current society, the feeling of growing separation and what we can all do to find a 'middle ground'. Using spoken word, physical theatre, music and dance the artistic team will work with participants to produce a theatre piece that will be performed in July at the Playground Theatre in Kensington.

Participants do not need any previous performing experience, only a desire to be part of a creative process and openness to getting involved and working with a wide range of people. Participants must be able to commit to the whole project and we ask for regular attendance to enable us to rehearse consistently.

All sessions are full of humour, positive energy, and an abundance of professionalism, integrity & team work. It's such a joy to work with so many different people from all different walks of life that I would probably have never met, it's been amazing!! I have never left a session without having my spirits lifted & it has given me an appreciation for the things in life that really matter
