About Brutal Bristol:
Brutal Bristol is a Promenade style performance piece which focuses on 13 main characters of which all lived in Bristol and the southwest within the last 200 years.
The stories are true and educational, yet simultaneously theatrical and haunting. The performance is suitable to entertain and educate all ages, yet our aim is to work alongside secondary schools for children studying drama and/or history to bring their education to life, as sections of the performance zone in on; The Bristol slave trade, Gender laws and The treatment of mental health in Bristol over the years. We want our audience to embrace Bristol's history whilst being able to evaluate how far we have come as a city, a society and a community.
We also aim to bring actors and actresses across Bristol together to work on a project that they will both enjoy and learn from. We also aim for all of our actors to build not heir acting skillset and strive for more confidence for future performances and auditions.
About Rosina Theatre:
Rosina Theatre is a new business I’ve started within the past year, We have previously run scare acting classes, but Brutal Bristol is our first performance project so we are yet to met any substantial profit.
Rosina Theatre aim to hold performance at least once if not twice a year which will run for a minimum of 1 - 2 weeks. In the time between these performances we will be both planning the next performance and holding actor training classes, for character building & scare acting.
I will be registered as a sole trade under the company name Rosina theatre. The company is 100% female owned and led, with hope of going into a partnership in the next few years the company will continue to be 100% female owned and led.
