Celebration Summer School!
Work with leading UK Black Artists:
Joining with Central School of Speech and Drama, WAC is offering an entirely new experience this summer! All 14-25 year olds are invited to meet and work with some of the leading lights of the British theatre, film and music industries.
An exciting programme of workshops, Q&A sessions, play readings, film showings and masterclasses, kicks off with a showing of Pressure - the first full-length drama feature film by a black director in Britain. Writer and director Horace Ove will then be taking part in a Q&A session looking at all aspects of the film and its production.
This ground breaking Summer School runs for two weeks from Monday 30th July until Friday 10th August. Collaborating artists include singers Kevin Mark Trail (The Streets) and Joy Mack (The Harder They Come - Lovers Rock), and playwrights Che Walker (The Globe's The Frontline and Royal Court's Been So Long) and Roy Williams (Fallout ).
There are also sessions with artistic director Dawn Walton (Eclipse Theatre Co) and members of the cast of West End production The Lion King . Actors Martina Laird (Casualty) and Danny Sapani (Misfits) will be working with students, fresh from their highly celebrated appearances in the recent National Theatre production of Moon on a Rainbow Shawl .
WAC director, Celia Greenwood says, "Having supported many black artists into the profession for over thirty years, WAC is thrilled to be able to share their success with a new generation of emerging artists."
This is an amazing opportunity to take part in a very special creative experience. Offered in partnership with Central Connects at Central School of Speech and Drama, it is also an exciting, new development in cultural education. Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and to reserve yours, please contact us as soon as possible on 020 7692 5888 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We look forward to hearing from you!
With best wishes from the WAC team.
