Anthos Young Company Acting Classes- 'Sherlock Holmes'

"The game's afoot!"

We are thrilled to announce our next Anthos Young Company project; 'Sherlock Holmes.' This term our young company group for ages 12-18 will delve into the shadowy world of Sherlock Holmes as the famous detective is faced with a challenge unlike any before!

Performers will receive professional actor training and partake in a number of theatre exercises as they explore and create an all new tale featuring characters from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous tales. The #AYC classes aim to teach young performers important performance skills and how to work as part of a professional theatre company. Participants are also able to take part in the Arts Award, a national qualification which celebrates creativity and commitment to the arts. We are offering levels Explore and Bronze this term.

Rehearsals for 'Sherlock Holmes' will take place Thursday evenings from 6-8pm at Exeter University's Thornlea Studios. The project will run from Thursday 1st Feb to Thursday 22nd March, with the final performance on Saturday 24th March. The total cost of the project is £52 (£6.50 per week) or £64 with the additional arts award option (£8 per week).

Anthos Arts

At the centre of Anthos Arts is the term ‘accessible’. This is not just for the work we intend to create, but also for the participants we wish to recruit; funding enables us to pay for those who may find themselves financially or geographically isolated and who would usually struggle to access similar ventures.

Anthos Arts looks to discover the potential of young imaginations, guiding the group in a creative, expressive process, probing questions about what it means to be a young person in Devon. The project Anthos creates build confidence and healthy esteem by developing self-identities, in a safe, local and nurturing environment.

Further, Anthos Arts utilises the Arts Award template so that the facilitator may award its members with a National Qualification at the end of the process, after the final performance. This award can be for the Bronze or Silver qualification and is a highly regarded certificate that is recognisable by Higher Education/Further Education and employers.

Performing physical theatre gives performers the opportunity to use and combine many techniques; to express themselves, not solely through acting or dance, but through a diverse range of art forms.

Creating the performance, Anthos will guide the group through:

•Acting and Improvisation

•Physical Theatre and Dance

•Social Engaged Arts and Creative Writing

•Ways of Applying Theatre into the Community

This is a multi-layered company that asks groups to push barriers, think independently, work as a community, learn new skills, and - above all – have fun

We need your help supporting young creatives
