Be treated to a private show performed just for you! Participants from Equal Arts, Seven Stories and Moving Parts have created a series of non-verbal theatre-for-ones as part of our Community Project. The project aims to make accessible, sensory work for all ages and to develop the skill set of North East artists.  This work has been taken into Gateshead care homes through Equal Arts partnerships and presented to children with learning difficulties as Seven Stories. Turn up early if you want to experience them all!
