Now You See Me... Now You Don't

Now You See Me... Now You Don't

Devised and written by the Company with Kathryn Johnson and Lyndi Smith. Directed by Lyndi Smith.

The Belgrade Community & Education Company presented the Junior Youth Theatre and Eagle Street in Now You See Me… Now You Don’t, which ran from 13 to 15 February 2008.

The Belgrade Community & Education Company worked with Eagle Street Play Centre, Foleshill, for two years in order to develop an Outreach Youth Theatre through delivering weekly workshops.

The two groups worked in parallel to investigate sock puppets, mirror images and physical movement on the theme of hide and seek. They created scenarios that were scripted and shaped into a play, which was then rehearsed. The groups met separately once a week and then came together on Sundays to rehearse joint scenes.

Speaking at the time, Artistic Team leaders Lyndi Smith and Kathryn Johnson, commented:

“This will be the first time a lot of the young people have performed live on stage and, with this in mind, we have looked at including all the young people in ways they feel comfortable and overcome their fear and worries about performing for an audience, enabling them to have fun with their performance. We’re really pleased with the finished article.”
