The Albany’s Uncover Music Company of young producer’s, promoters, DJ’s and musicians meet weekly and collaborate with Craig Shanda aka Chunky (Swamp 81, Hoya:Hoya and Hessle Audio) a regular on the UK club scene, to create a new music night called Amplify. The Uncover group programme, produce and perform at the Amplify events giving them experience of everything from budgeting to event management, artist liaison and marketing. The event is youth led and eclectic where performances range from a South East London based folk band, a UK hip-hop MC and a 15 piece South American drumming band. With the Uncover Music Company we aim to inspire the next generation of musicians and promoters to be entrepreneurial and have a ‘do it yourself’ attitude to prepare them for success in an ever changing music industry.
Check out the video from our recent Amplify event to get a feel for what we do...
Uncover Theatre make large-scale, ensemble performance that is about the experiences and ideas of the group members. Our work is an organised chaos, energetic and sometimes raw with a mix of rehearsed and live moments. We use movement, design, new and original texts that we develop as a company, big soundtracks and improvisations. We are constantly developing our work, how we approach it, where we do it and what we make it about, to communicate our thoughts and ideas in different ways. We make theatre that excites us and our audiences and work that we think pushes people's ideas about what we are capable of doing as young people.
The group meet weekly and work towards creating performances for the Albany and other exciting festivals and venues. We have previously performed at the Albany, Soho Theatre, Lewisham Peoples Day, Forest Fest, Brockley Max and the Southbank Centre.
'Our youth theatre isn't like other youth theatres. If I didn't have this theatre to motivate me, I don't think I would be motivated at all.'
