A central drive of the The Spectators' Guild is a belief in engagement with the community that surrounds the site of each performance to create an ongoing cultural legacy once we have closed any production.
For Venice Preserv'd we are working with a group of 35 Young People from Greenwich and Lewisham in workshops and rehearsals so they can form an integral part of the performance for its 7 week run.
With support from partnerships with The Ahoy Club, The Albany, Lewisham Education Arts Network and Emergency Exit Arts, amongst many other local organisations, we are ensuring that our production has porous boundaries: effecting the community it appears in and being affected in return.
We are also in the process of applying for funds from Greenwich Council and Awards for All to create a company from our Venice Preserv'd Young Persons Cast that will exist beyond the lifetime of our show.
Their first performance is aimed for The Tall Ships Regatta in September this year.
