‘Perceptions’ was a piece of devised physical theatre, created with the Rhyfdyfelin Flight Wings group and written by Gemma Fraser-Jones. Flight Wings Rhydyfelin Creative group are an integrated cast of young people with a range of abilities and experiences. They work together to support, excite and enrich their theatre and learning experiences for one another. The group looked at poverty as a theme and in particular homelessness. How are we viewed in society, and what makes us truly happy? The group performed in the Rhydyfelin Methodist Church to a packed audience, leaving lots of unanswered questions for them to ponder upon, as we enter into the festive season. The production was greatly received by the audience with friends, family and community members stunned by such a beautiful thought-provoking performance. The script featured original poetry by one of the young people who shared her experience of being homeless through creative writing. A sample of feedback from our audience members:
“Beautiful, thought-provoking piece, brought me to tears, and made me think about how us humans live and behave”
“Powerful, poignant, beautifully performed and produced”
“Very powerful! Deeply sincere and honest. Tremendous work!! Congratulations, let’s have more. Loved it!!
