Redcliffe Senior’s Community Theatre Collective
This group is a development of PECo theatre’s Place Based Theatre Club that ran in Spring 2017.
Funded by Bristol Ageing Better and in partnership with Redcliffe care, the club introduced participants to a wide range of creative activities that explored site specific performance work and developed an idea for a piece of theatre inspired by the site of St Mary Redcliffe and her immediate neighbourhood.
The Redcliffe Seniors Theatre Collective has been set up to put these ideas into action!
As a member of the collective you will gain new skills and experiences, make new friends and connections, discover all manner of things about the Redcliffe area you didn't know before and you will be at the heart of making decisions about how the work develops and helping shape what it becomes.
There will be something for everyone whether as story collector, storyteller, community actor, core deviser general supporter in other ways and you can get involved in all these activities or only one or two of them.
PECo theatre are a Bristol based community interest theatre company who make work that connects people and place with the power of the imagination. Our work aims to transform, celebrate, reimagine and investigate, start conversations, spark new connections and place audiences and the communities we work with at the heart of all these experiences in meaningful and participatory ways. Set up in 2008 the company moved to Bristol in 2012 and have developed and run everything from large scale performances, events and festivals to smaller more intimate shows and installations.
