Update from our drama class for 8 - 12 year olds
Play Cafe was led by Creation Station this week who shared some ideas for their next show with families this morning.
Creation Station members Lennon and Maya along with honorary members Geraldine and Thom performed new material from the, as yet unnamed performance that the group will continue to work on ahead of their grand premiere which will form part of the Made in Easterhouse festival this October.
The material they shared today was lots of fun and featured loads of balloons!
From Platform Associate Artist Geraldine Heaney:
“Before the summer holidays Creation Station have been experimenting and thinking about how to make a show for children younger than themselves.
We stared by looking at childrens books and trying to work out what we thought 3-6 year olds like.
We spent time playing with balloons.
We spent time trying to make each other laugh.
We spent time telling funny stories about our younger friends, little brothers and sisters.
The performance seemed to go down well, we all had fun doing it and it’s given us lots of ideas to take back to the rest of Creation Station after the summer holidays.
We’re going to do this performance again on 1st October.
Expect balloons, boxes and a bit of anarchy!”
