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
After attending Edge Two consistently for three months, participants are offered specialist training to become a Volunteer Peer Mentor or Volunteer Support Facilitator. Please contact the OETC office for more information on joining the Volunteering & Employment Pathway.
Edge Two participants are encouraged to attend OETC’s Social Activities, such as free Theatre Trips and Service User Social Events. Opportunities are advertised to current participants via email and text message.
If you would like to develop more experience and join Edge Two, we require that you have shown at least three months of commitment within Drop-in Drama, Women’s Drama Group or West London Write Now and are well established within your recovery and understand the aims of OETC. Four times a year there is opportunity to join Edge Two depending on our programme of work. Please contact OETC’s office for more information.
