My experience with People’s Company so far has only been virtual, which is quite a unique experience.
People’s Company rose to the challenge and continued to deliver artistic excellence through a virtual platform. My first participating project with People’s Company was the groups first radio play ‘Doors’ which was also performed on Zoom with no visuals – just the actors voices and audio effects.
I hadn’t been part of any theatre production since studying drama at secondary school and being a member of People’s Company is an honour and a privilege. My confidence has grown in this short time and it is not showing any signs of slowing down. I have a place to express myself creatively and work with other creative, talented and artistic individuals who share a love for theatre like I do. Being part of a collective that share their talents and skills and encourage its members to develop their own skills and explore their curiosity is being a member of People’s Company.
People's Company has made me feel more connected to the community and its history whilst giving me an entry back into stage acting that I had sorely missed
For me, being part of Opening Doors was just magical. Each rehearsal was a unique experience where our individual doorways to creative thinking and feeling were encouraged to open again and again, breathing life into the characters and context of our amazing offering.
Pitter-pattering pre/post-war Walworth, and the lives of its locals, was very special. I honed my listening skills helping others fine-tune lines and bring their characters to life. LONG LIVE THE EMPEROR!
