About the organisation
Omnibus Theatre is a multi-award-winning independent theatre in Clapham, South London. The heart of our ambitious programme, inspired by our building’s literary heritage, lies in both classics re-imagined and contemporary storytelling. We provide a platform for new writing and interdisciplinary work, aiming to give voice to the underrepresented and challenge perceptions. We believe in affordable tickets and theatre for all.

About the project
A free 10 week programme, of 2 hour physical theatre and dance workshops for 20 young LGBT+ people to improve mental health. The sessions will be led by a talented LGBT+ facilitator who is experienced in working with young, diverse and marginalised non-professional performers. They will learn devising, performing and dancing skills, creating 4 routines exploring self-identity.

On the 10th session, participants will perform to friends/family, with professional production values in our theatre, instilling a sense of pride and achievement. Participants can then join a permanent Omnibus Community Chorus, responding to productions, including performing their routines alongside professional actors in our new adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando this September–October, presented in association with Stonewall and featuring an all-trans cast.
