Event description

Description

'I Deserve a Better Chance' is the result of 6 months of weekly sessions where participants of Acting Now group "Making Changes" have been dreaming and growing together whilst creating a play collectively.

The group started in 2015 as a project aimed at people with and without mental health challenges in which devising a Physical Theatre play was both the ultimate goal and also the path for engaging with each other, developing skills and improving their self-esteem.

Three years on, 'Making Changes' is presenting their third theatre production which will be showed next 12th and 14th April at CB2 Café Basement, 7.30 pm - 8.30 pm.

'I Deserve a Better Chance' pictures a mosaic of personal experiences where actors take us to a past moment of their lives when everything changed drastically. As it is common procedure at Acting Now, all stories are based in participants' true facts while have gone through a process of collective imagination and creation. With great honesty and courage, participants share their reflections about their own challenges and existence while they claim a better chance, all seen through the powerful lens of Physical Theatre language.

Making Changes created two other plays in the past and performed in different venues in Cambridge such as ADC Corpus Playroom, where they performed the heart-breaking "Keep Holding My Hand", in which actors portrayed their own stories around suffering mental health challenges realistically.

Join us for a powerful performance and contribute to the continuity of the drama group.
