Royal Opera House Education
About the project
In addition to my Creative Partnerships work for ROH I have also delivered a number of specific engagement initiatives for the Royal Opera House in the Thurrock and Thames Gateway region.
I co-ordinated a partnership project between the BBC and ROH at BBC Blast Southend, where ROH had their own workshop programme delivering costume, vocal and stage make up workshops. This was combined with Breaking the Line a youth dance commission involving young people from two schools and tutors from the Royal Ballet and Kayzar urban dance company, who created a combined ballet/street dance piece and performed this at a local festival.
I organised a World Book Day event for ROH to coincide with the launch of a schools new library which included readings and workshops for parents and children. I also helped to deliver the week long Youth Insight research project for the new ROH Production Park in Purfleet and the Curtain Up education conference programme.
