SIRF works with many artists and companies through support, mentoring and commissioning new work. We are delighted to be working with Full Circle as the embark on the creation of their first performance piece for the outdoors. We look forward to working with them between now and 2021 when we will present their new work as part of the SIRF Programme.
Full Circle started in 2008 as part of Stockton Council’s Adult Services department. They were described as a ‘community hub’ as services expanded to enable people more choices in how they spent their time. The group was supported by two day service staff with no drama experience but lots of enthusiasm. They worked in, an often drafty, community centre with a recurring leak in the roof.
With eight members, their resolve was solid and they experimented with small drama games, film-making and short scenes within the scope of the two support workers. They visited ARC, liked it and wondered if there might be some space for them somewhere in the building. A relationship grew from this encounter and the group took up residence five days per week. Funding was raised, through ARC, to work with a drama facilitator and the group performed their first show, Changes, in the studio space at ARC.
