Founded in Exeter 2014, PaddleBoat Theatre CIC is an award-winning company committed to delivering high-quality inclusive productions and workshops to children and families across the South-West. At the heart of our work is inclusivity and the desire to share inspiring stories.
They have received an Annual Fund grant for their project ‘Roald Dahl, Skin and Other Stories’ – a workshop series with students of Exeter Deaf Academy.
Speaking of the grant, Michael Smith said:
“We are so excited to work with the very talented students at the Deaf Academy in the spring term to create performances based around Roald Dahl’s weird and wonderful short stories! We will use these texts as a starting point to help the students develop their literature skills through embodied learning – at the end of the term the students will get to perform in their schools brand new theatre space. We can’t wait to see the amazing performances that the students come up with!”
