Chris Isaacs Writing Mentorship
The Riptide Youth Theatre ensemble collaborated with accomplished theatre-maker Chris Isaacs as a writing mentor to develop skills in writing for performance, both individually and in a devised group context.
Isaacs ran a session on writing and devising techniques that assisted in generating material for the fully ensemble-devised show Homebrand, which will be performed at FringeWorld 2020.
“Participants felt as though their creative opinions were truly valued by Chris, a professional and experienced artist, giving them a sense of empowerment to head out into their communities and lead other young people to create their own art, with the same sense of value. It further inspired the next generation of creatives in the Peel region.”
