Louise Pendry

Louise is Artistic Director of Bounce Theatre. Over the past few years she has co-created drama in alternative education settings. Working alongside young people with social and emotional issues they have made three professionally performed productions. Fried Chicken tackled male identity and gang crime. Emoji touch upon mental health. Their current production SCAR looks at young peoples relationship with health. Alongside this she has facilitated young people to create installations and drama around health, loneliness, fashion and urban art exhibited at the Rose Theatre, National Archives and Saatchi Gallery.

Making new theatre
The workshop will look at the making of EMOJI & SCAR. We will explore some ways to make theatre with students who don't want to perform or think theatre is 'moist'. SCAR is part of Our Health Your Hands, a project celebrating 70 years of the NHS. It will be at the National Archives this July. Free tickets are available to all participants and groups of young people as part of the workshop.
