Torgle Box – How Do You View Us? 2017
2017’s performance was called ‘Torgle Box – How do you view us?’ It is based on real life and fictional stories that the students felt passionate enough to share with an audience. We looked in detail at three main areas this year; ‘Undateables first dates’, ‘Question Time’ and ‘Born to be Great.’ We used a mixture of live pieces, recorded videography and dance to tell our stories.
It's Time To Think 2016
The Face Me Theatre Companies 2016 production was called “It’s time to think.” The production was split into three different elements… 1. What’s it like to have a child with a disability. 2. Living with Autism and 3. Peer Pressure/ Homophobia.
In the Face of Adversity 2015
The Face Me Theatre Companies 2015 production was called “In the Face of Adversity”. The show played out in the form of a lesson and aimed to show and help people how to approach and speak to people with special needs. There was also a fantastic sketch raising issues about dealing with mental health problems.
Other fantastic performances included signed songs of A Great Big World ft. Christina Aguilera’s “Say Something” and Coldplay’s “Fix You” as well as a dance and partial signed performance of Paolo Nutini’s “Iron Sky.” Also the credits form part of the production as a scene in their own right.
