Edge Two is for those who are becoming more established within their recovery. The sessions focus on theatre skills development and securing a greater understanding of drama as a tool for supporting recovery.
Every three months the group decides to focus on a single skill for performance. Recent modules include:
- Acting Through Song
- Acting for Camera and Microphone
Each module culminates with an informal sharing of exercise material for friends and family.
Edge Two will help you to:
1. Develop theatre and performance skills
2. Promote and develop understanding of the power of drama in recovery
3. Foster personal confidence and communication skills
Covid-19 Update (November 2020)
Following the government’s announcement over the weekend, we know that many in our community have questions about how they will continue to connect with Outside Edge during the next month. At this point, we can confirm that all of our activities, including blended sessions, will go ahead as planned through Wednesday, November 4th.
The latest government guidelines make an allowance for formally organised support groups that provide mutual aid, or any other form of support, for people in drug and alcohol recovery to remain open with up to 15 participants. Therefore we will be able to continue offering Covid-safe, socially distanced in-person activities throughout the upcoming period of lockdown from November 5th to December 4th. this will include the blended service delivery of Edge Two.
Although we will be able to continue to offer this essential service for some service users, we strongly encourage as many people as possible to access Outside Edge activities from their homes.
For those of you that do need to attend in person, find out what to expect here!
