Community is not a Dirty Word

“Community is not a dirty word”I wrote those words in my notebook whilst en route to the Acta Community Theatre Festival in Bristol last week.There can be connotations of the words “Community Theatre” that are less than helpful. As a working professional in Theatre I've frequently come across assumptions that Community work is somehow lesser than the “High Art” of Professionals putting plays on stages. Indeed, there's even talk of some organisations using “Community Engagement” just as a…See More

Critical Chinwag Thoughts - “Tonight I'm going to be the new me”

I came to this show with that anticipation one has when you've absolutely loved a company's previous work. I was a huge fan of “Gym Party”, which may mean I came to this show with unreasonably high expectations.Of course, they are two different shows & I shouldn't hold them up against each other. But, some of the themes & ideas followed similar lines, so perhaps they do stand up to comparison.Both shows set out to challenge, both the performer & the audience, they looked at…See More

Why I'll keep harping on about TEAM

It was, give or take a few weeks, three years ago I had my first TEAM experience, attending a Leadership training course. This morning I received a letter welcoming me as a National Theatre Wales Board Member as TEAM Representative. It’s been quite a journey!

My experience of attending that Leadership Training day in early 2014 explains a great deal about what TEAM is about, what it means to me & why I’m proud to have been able to represent TEAM for the last three years.

Hi Ben - you are the second person to message me that in 10 minutes - I have sent a test email to our account and so far, it has neither arrived, nor bounced back! Can I check that it was info@dirtyprotesttheatre.co.uk you emailed? Sometimes people miss off the 2t's? Otherwise, send me your message to my personal address catherinepaskell (at) gmail (dot) com and at least I'll have it x
