drama club | tuesday | 16:30 – 18:30

Backbone’s Drama Club is a fun, inclusive, and inspiring space facilitated by professional artists with extensive experience and training. Participants are engaged in a devised theatre making process, where they create original performances, articulating their own ideas and using their own experiences and imaginations.

art CLUB | wednesday | 16:30 – 18:30

Participants will engage in a range of different art making techniques and ideas. Drawing, sculpting, painting, installation and performance art with an emphasis on collaboration, concept development and problem solving. Participants will work out individually and collectively different ways of executing and seeing through the art works and art projects that are so clear in our mind’s eye but can sometimes prove tricky to bring into this world.

Take action into your own hands and learn some tricks to bring the most brutal combat to your opponent without any harm at all! This active workshop combines martial arts and acting in the coolest ways possible. Superheros, Ninjas and Extremers – this one is for you.
