Would you like to create a play and learn more about performing? Have you been wanting to make theatre with like-minded individuals?

HIT Helsinki's English speaking community theatre group The Minding People is starting a new project this autumn, and is calling you to join. The process starts with a weekend workshop (25.-27.8.), where the participants create short plays in small groups. Teams will start to work on Friday and perform the plays for each other on Sunday evening. 


After the weekend workshop all those participants that want to continue working and are ready to commit to a longer process, are welcome to join The Minding People. The group will make and rehears a performance during the season and perform it in December (the premier 11.12.2017)

You can be experienced in drama or someone starting from scratch. The working language for the group will be english, but you don’t have to be a native speaker in order to join. The group will be led by performance art professionals and the project offers an introduction into the world of theatre and performance in a supportive environment. The group provides an opportunity to meet and work with like-minded people, brush up on those english speaking skills and most importantly have fun!
