Anthos Arts

Anthos Arts Applied Physical Theatre Company

Anthos Arts is a newly funded Applied Physical Theatre company, working with young people between 14-16 years of age in Devon.

Anthos creates a space that brings young people together to form a creative community. It’s eminently accessible to all who are interested in originality, experimentation and play.

At the centre of Athos Arts is the term ‘accessible’. This is not just for the work we intend to create, but also for the participants we wish to recruit; funding enables us to pay for those who may find themselves financially or geographically isolated and who would usually struggle to access similar ventures.

Anthos Arts looks to discover the potential of young imaginations, guiding the group in a creative, expressive process, probing questions about what it means to be a young person in Devon. The project Anthos creates build confidence and healthy esteem by developing self-identities, in a safe and nurturing environment.

Further, Anthos Arts utilises the Arts Award template so that the company may award its members with a National Qualification at the end of the process, after the final performance. This award can be for the Bronze or Silver qualification and is a highly regarded certificate that is recognisable by Higher Education/Further Education and employers.

Performing physical theatre gives performers the opportunity to use and combine many techniques; to express themselves, not solely through acting or dance, but through a diverse range of art forms. Creating the performance, Anthos will guide the group through:

• Acting and Improvisation
• Physical Theatre and Dance
• Social Engaged Arts and Creative Writing
• Ways of Applying Theatre into the Community

This is a multi-layered company that asks groups to push barriers, think independently, work as a community, learn new skills, and - above all – have fun.

Community is a 21st century buzzword; connected community has become both a local and national aspiration. But what does it really mean to build a community? How does it feel to bridge communities and to connect? And wha...
