"Complicated…a couple are in the throes of young love. Meanwhile SHE always has a hard time, every guy has made HER feel worthless, as SHE sits in reveries and day dreams, wondering when to make HER move!" We have collaborated with a director and actors , we have created our first devised play called "Her". we are currently working with Park Theatre in Finsbury Park ,North London. In continuing our development of our current production we are holding a rehearsed showing to an invited audience, this would lead to a full production run on stage in the summer the following year. We would like to use this opportunity for the invited audience to get a true insight of our company and our production. We rehearse once a week and create scenes by improvising and writing. We have started regular on-going drama workshops for children and adults who are intrested in drama, as a way of giving back we felt we wanted to share our knowledge of the performance industry within the community.

What we'll deliver:

  • A regular space for likewise creatives to create ideas for futures plays
  • Regular drama classes for adults and children
  • collaborate with local professional theatres to allow us to showcase our work regulary

Why it's a great idea:

I believe we are the best company to achieve this because we provide a regular space for people to open up, communicate with others and build confidence. The outcomes I would like to see for this project are: to inspire and motivate people to work together to create their own projects, to get the community to connect and inspire one another, and to reduce local crime rates by providing a safe outlet for people’s pent-up energies. In order to assess how this project will run we will use feedback forms at the start, middle and end of the project to track what people think and feel how it’s working for them. This project will be sustainable as we will be constantly involving different artists in different fields to appeal to the diverse interests of the public, e.g. actors, dancers, directors, sound technicians, visual arts, lighting technicians, etc. We are creating our play with the goal of being performed throughout all of London, to showcase our talents to theatres and film directors

Steps to get it done:

  • Regular drama classes
  • Performance at park theatre
  • performances around london

Born To Create is a platform of all artist to collaborate on a regular basis to continue grow in the field. Born to create hopes that working as a collective will be a great platform for creatives and those in the community to have a successful career in the performing arts industry. In return Born to create will be running regular drama sessions for children and adults who are interested in drama. These sessions will work on a 12 week programme where attendees will have the opportunity to showcase thier work on a local professional stage.
