Disorder: Schools Performances
At this special event, youth theatre groups from Dodford First School (The Boy Who Did Not Fit In), Holywell Primary School (Little Monsters), Alvechurch Middle School (The Butterfly Project), Hunters Hill College (Boys) and North Bromsgrove High School (If I Die) will each perform ten-minute devised pieces around issues of young mental health and well-being.
The event will also feature a screening of Private Request, a short film exploring Child Sexual Exploration made by Year 9 and 10 students from North Bromsgrove High School in collaboration with Artrix and Tiger Features. This work is funded by the office of John Campion, West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner.
This event is part of DISORDER, a young people’s mental health arts festival funded by a National Lottery, Awards for All grant.
Artrix Arts Centre is dedicated to working with local young people to devise, produce and perform work that gives them a voice. We believe passionately that a vital part of our mission is giving young people a space to explore issues that they care about. This May we are proud to present Disorder - a youth mental health arts festival showcasing some of the incredible work that our young participants have created.
Please note: This showcase evening will be split into two halves, with the younger age groups performing between 19:00 – 19:30, (Dodford First School, Holywell Primary and Alvechurch Middle School). At 19:30 there will be a ten minute interval, for younger children and audience members to leave if they wish, since the second half contains some material which may not be suitable for younger children.
During the interval, pupils who are performing in the first half will be released by school teachers in the foyer, with the chance to return to the theatre for the second half if parents and guardians wish. Please be aware that if you wish to return to the auditorium with your child, you will need to book a seat for them in advance. We look forward to seeing you on the 23rd.
