LEEDS TIE"A powerful medium for opening up many issues for children, parents and professionals"
LEEDS THEATRE IN EDUCATION
See Us In Action
We specialise in the use of drama to enable people to talk safely about difficult issues. Starting with a play each programme also includes a workshop element & follow up packs.
A participatory play, devised in partnership with the BLAST Project and part of an Educational Theatre Programme that examines the issues around grooming & CSE, and supports work on health & wellbeing, safe relationships, homophobia & domestic abuse..
A new programme that will look at issues around knife crime, hate crime and domestic violence. The programme will consist of a participatory play, post play discussions, workshops and teaching support materials.
The Witch’s House Legacy Project
2020 marks 50 years since Leeds Playhouse TIE Company began. It’s 26 years since we left the Playhouse and we’re still creating and delivering educational theatre programmes for disadvantaged children and adults in Leeds.
As one of the few TIE companies still in existence, we want to try to capture and record the work so professionals, students and anyone who’s interested can see how and why it’s made and the impact it has on audiences.
So we’re planning a legacy project, using video, podcasts and social media to document the process of creating The Witch’s House from the search for funding, through devising, researching, writing, rehearsal to the pilot performances, scheduled for Summer 2020.
Alongside this we intend to create a record of Leeds TIE from the beginning in 1970 through its various stages of evolution to the present. As part of this history we want to invite people to share their memories of the work. We already have 3 contributions in our Legacy Project section and we’ll post more as we receive them.
If you want to follow the project, get involved and contribute or you just want more information then look for updates here, follow us on Facebook (link below) or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
