Making the Ages and Stages documentary

We have now started the devising process for the 'Ages and Stages' documentary, which will be performed in the main Vic auditorium on Wednesday 11th July. An intergenerational performance group (including members of the New Vic Youth Theatre and our existing group of older participants) are attending weekly workshops at the theatre, where we are starting to draw together ideas for the documentary, using extracts from the interviews, group discussions and archival materials gathered by researchers at Keele. The documentary will explore people's experiences at the New Vic over the course of their lives, and the relationship between ageing, theatre and creativity.

Over the coming weeks, we'll be inviting members of the performance group to write their own blog posts about their involvement in 'Ages and Stages' and their experiences and memories of the New Vic...
