Call For Participants To Create A New Community Opera – Kent

Creative Opportunities

From the 29th of January Curious Planet will be running a series of theatre performance and design workshops at the Brook Theatre in Chatham in the run up to the production of their new opera: Element – Beyond the Immutable Weight of Gravity.

Each workshop will present participants with the opportunity to acquire and stretch a different set of theatrical skills. Working with professional theatre producers, directors and performers, participants will practice a number of disciplines including ensemble theatre, vocal technique, design for stage, character work etc.

The work will culminate in the production of a grand opera at the beginning of April that will then tour to community settings across Kent.*

Workshops will run on selected Saturdays until March and are open to anyone from 10 years to 100 years.

To register an interest in taking part, please e-mail:

As a result of subsidy funding they are able to offer the workshops at £5 per person per session. Please note that spaces at the workshops are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

*The tour is subject to final funding. Participants of the workshops will be invited to take part in the final production, but will need to attend at least 4 workshops.
