About the event

Course Time: 9.30 - 4pm

Suitable for Ages 8 - 13 years

Following on from the successes of Lost Forest (2017) and Where the Waters Wave (2018).  Arts at Stowe and Red Phoenix Storytelling unite for Temples of Time and Space!

During this week the participants will explore the theme of space, with a supervised visit to the features of Stowe Gardens and the Temples to find inspiration for creating their own self-created sci-fi performance at the end of the week.  Gaining performance skills in theatre, storytelling and clowning the five day sessions will encourage the young actors to create their own fantasy themes and characters.  This will be expertly directed under the guidance of Terrie Howey of Red Phoenix Storytelling and her team.

Terrie says of the play-in-a-week, “We start with no script, not even I know what we will present by Friday, and I believe giving young people ownership over all aspects of the play, from script to props, sound to direction which is exciting as it is daunting.  Yet, I am always so impressed by the hard work and dedication that arises during the week, the ideas the participants develop, and how much they grow in confidence.”

Whether you’re a young actor looking for inspiration or want an active week of fun during the holidays this will be a week to remember!
