Bravo 22 LIVE: What’s on next week

Bravo 22 Company was created by Alice Driver, using theatre as a vehicle for recovery. It was produced with the Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust, The Royal British Legion and Ministry of Defence in 2011.

Some highlights from last weeks workshops:

The secret to writing a good story – thank you Lolita Chakrabarti for a totally enthralling session and to Nerys  Pearce for her superb story reading! Lolita is back next week running a workshop on story writing – sign up below – only a few spaces available.

That paintings can tell more than one story – Al Johnson returned with the inimitable Ian Rudge presenting, and a fascinating exploration of the hidden depths behind The Battle of San Romano painting, by Paolo Uccello.

That making puppets is a complete joy! Take one polystyrene ball, a small piece of cloth and a few pipe cleaners, and what do you get? With the expert guidance of Adam Courting you get a puppet, of course.  If you fancy giving it a go, why not take up Adam’s challenge and choose three different materials from two different rooms in your home and see what sort of puppet you can make. Send the pics to and the team will share as many as they can.

That writing sketch comedy is as fun as watching it! Sharing some precious time with Tom Crowley earlier this week, a group of Bravo 22 members watched, listened, deliberated and collaborated, and generated a host of brilliant set-ups for comedy sketches. The team hope to share some of the finished sketches with you in the near future….

Next weeks sessions

Love poetry? Hate it? Scared of it?  Whichever it is, you will not want to miss Jo Bell’s session on Tuesday, skilfully assisted by Graham Limb.

Have you ever thought of making portraits from packaging? Probably not but Alex Julyan has and will reveal how it’s done in a practical arts session on Thursday, presented by Larraine Smith.

Every week they’ll be putting out a round-up of what they’ve been up to and details of what’s coming next. If you’re interested in getting involved you can head over to their Youtube channel and get the latest on their next session.
