We run two drama groups within Skillnet Group. I'm Alright, based in Dover, and Risky Business, based in Sittingbourne. Read more about the groups below.
We are a group of people with and without learning difficulties who have a passion for performing.
We work together to do improvisation, drama games and improve our acting skills. We also write scripts and put on performances.
(This is us doing one of our improvisation games)
In December 2013 we put on our first performance at The Dover Discovery Centre. This was our version of A Christmas Carol which we called ‘Scrooge’.
We are currently working on a performance on the theme of ‘power’ which we hope to perform at Dover Castle in November 2014 for our Skillnet Group Big Gathering.
We are making contact with mainstream drama groups to create co-produced performances where people with and without learning difficulties are treated equally as performers.
We are hoping to work with an arts organisation called Funsense on their project ‘Stories in Gardens’ during the summer of 2015 where we will perform interactive drama pieces in public gardens.
Being part of the drama group can support:
We meet once a week on a Tuesday afternoon from 1pm – 4pm at the Skillnet offices, 2nd Floor, Maybrook House, Queens Gardens, Dover.
