We work with children, youth and women, facilitating the creation of original and high quality theatre, in which participants write their own scripts. While making theatre, we are continuously training up facilitators, trainees and youth leaders to lead the work themselves.
Seenaryo Studio projects are our flagship productions led by professional theatre makers and our core team. They are developed over the course of several months with participants we know well or who we invite to audition. They tour nationally and even internationally. As part of the process, the actors in our Studio productions often undergo training with Seenaryo to be theatre facilitators themselves.
Seenaryo Cycles are productions created with participants we work with over regular cycles, giving the ensemble a chance to develop over time. They are led by facilitators we train, and delivered in collaboration with partners and communities we are embedded in.
Seenaryo Showbuilds are productions developed intensively over one or two weeks. They are led by facilitators we train, and delivered in collaboration with partners and communities we are embedded in.
Theatre Leadership Training
Training is an integral part of Seenaryo’s theatre strand. We introduce newcomers to participatory theatre practice, we offer further training for those with a developed practice, and we provide mentorship on the ground to those already leading our projects. Seenaryo has also developed its own Seenaryo Theatre Cookbook, as a resource for our facilitators.
