LIFE ACT

Life Act is an Open Minds Theatre Company’s acting company of adults with learning and physical difficulties. We devise performances that explore attitudes towards disability and difference using our own experiences and understanding and tour these to schools, community groups and other venues.

 

Previous shows have been:

  • The Land of Cos,
  • Prepare for Take Off,
  • Life is a Rollercoaster,
  • Climbing the Matterhorn,
  • Friendship is a Challenge.

Currently, Life Act is touring “Does He Take Sugar?”

 

Life Act has been supported by the Humber Learning Consortium, the Arts Council and RMBC. It is currently supported by the Peoples Health Trust.

 

The company is driven by a passionate belief that the arts is something which is essential to all and consequently there is no audition to join the group.

 

Life Act meets on a Tuesday morning at ROAR Art Space.

 

When we saw the range of difficulties and disabilities, we did wonder what sort of performance we were in for. We also wondered whether it would be difficult for our pupils to see older, struggling versions of themselves.
