A lovely moment captured from our Art from the Heart rehearsal the other day. It was all over far too quickly! The laughter you can hear in this video captures the essence of our community - so much joy! At least the next show is around the corner! ❤️

Original song and music by the wonderful @zoe_claytonkelly

We can’t wait to bring our next show Art from the Heart to the stage tomorrow! 7PM @swkplay

As well as a line-up of fantastic short plays we have a brilliant artist @lazarospasdekis on stage throughout the show and the audience can watch his painting unfold alongside the performances as the show develops. We also have the fantastic singer/song writer @zoe_claytonkelly who will be performing her original work throughout the show.

Art From The Heart is an evening of short stories by artists, sharing their art through their heart. Funny, dark, musical and poetic, Art From The Heart steps into the soul of what it means to be an artist, revealing an insight into the highs, lows, shapes and patterns of this ever changing, ever evolving journey. With artists speaking directly to you, Art From The Heart is a mix of new writing, physical performance , music and live art on stage. Stories told are based in truth, from personal experiences, to meaningful messages, questions and provocations, we share themes of our human experience; the inspiration behind all creation and story-telling.

All pieces created and shared are by members of our professional artistic community – The Directors Club, The Actors Club and The Writers Club.

Grab a ticket on our website or go direct to Southwark Playhouse’s website here: https://www.southwarkplayhouse.co.uk/events/art-from-the-heart/

See you there!

We couldn’t be prouder of our incredible community. The last time we had a show together was the day before theatres closed in March 2020, and we have shared so much together since then. Adapting and creating LOADS of short films during the entire time theatre’s were closed. Tomorrow we mark the end of a chapter and the beginning of a new one. We’d love your support as we RETURN to the stage @swkplay We can’t wait! Tickets can be purchased via our website, direct on the Southwark Playhouse website or turn up on the door at 7pm tomorrow! Join us for an evening of short stories by artists, sharing their art through their heart. We even have a live artist painting during the show!

We hope to see you there!

We do care about the individual as well as nurturing talent! That is why solid relationships and connections are made at DCTC and why so many of our members feel seen, heard and at home here. It’s a safe space, with incredible talent and a place where people get to really dive deep and explore themselves as well as others. You get a real taste for others talents and offerings here which is so inspiring week to week, as well as being encouraged and discovering even more of your own! See for yourself by joining us! We start back up next week, in person and are so excited! More details in the link in bio. Thanks to our member @tomosgwynfryn for his kind words on his experience with us over the last 4 years in The Actors Club!
