Uncover Theatre makes large-scale, ensemble performances that are 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 ages 13–18 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, Battersea Arts Centre, 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.' - Uncover Member
Uncover Theatre are still raising money for future projects. A while ago we set up a neighbourly account, the site allows for individuals to support local community projects through creating noise on the Uncover Theatre profile. The more people who follow the project the more noise our project generates and the more likely we are to secure support from funders using neighbourly. If everyone could sign up to neighbourly and follow and Share us on twitter/Facebook/LinkedIn that would really increase our chances of raising money for upcoming Uncover ventures.
