Oracle Project Postcards

Every week, our Oracle Projects in Finsbury Park and Angel write a short postcard about what they've been doing in their last session.  The postcards are mostly written by the young assistant directors from Work in Progress who help run the projects and sometimes they come direct from the participants themselves.

ORACLE @ EGA - THURSDAY 14 MARCH 13

Hey EGA, 

We were busy busy busy this week.  When everyone came in we started rehearsals straight away, everyone settled in well into their groups and started recapping the still images we had made. After recapping the images we added lines to the mini scneces.  We then rehearsed this for the rest of the session and showed back our work to everyone.  All the groups had done really well.  A big well done to everyone. 

One more session before the performance on Saturday.  

See you all soon.

ORACLE @ IAMS - SATURDAY 9 MARCH 13

Hello again everyone, I hope your all feeling fiiine and dandy!!

So what happened at last weeks IAMs Oracle? Well, the young people begun the session playing an epic game of WAH to warm up and then the real fun began!  Only TWO WEEKS left until the first viewing of the readerthon don... The final script was in and the young people, with the parts they were given last week, began a read through of the show. It was great to hear the piece come to life!! Towards the end we began to block the first scene `The announcement`... but more on that later! (Its a secret)

It's going to be great, so to those at IAMs Oracle: keep up the good work!

Ta Ra for now!!

ORACLE @ EGA - THURSDAY 7 MARCH 13

Hey lovey EGA,

We have now properly started rehearsals for the Readathon Don.  The show is only a few weeks away and we need to put our all into everything.  We practiced the song this week learning the verses and trying to make the song sound the best it could.  We sang the song with power and added a few clicks for the entrance.  

Hope everyone knows the song for our next session.  

See you soon.

ORACLE @ IAMS - SATURDAY 2 MARCH 13

This week was very exciting. It was the first week back after half term and it was great to see the young people willing to get stuck in. After playing a few games and getting warmed up, the young people discovered who they were going to play in the show! It was all very exciting.

They were then split up in to three groups to work on the first three scenes... now I know you would like me to reveal what happens but, for now, Im keeping it all hush hush. All I can say is it promises to be an exciting and magical piece of work :)

The script is done. The parts allocated. Three weeks till the first showing of 'The Readerthon Don'...

Till next time,

Hannah
