F*cktons of Fairies: New Action Theatre Group
South Wales theatre company F*cktons of Faries are back, and we're embarking on an exciting new project.
We're starting a theatre laboratory group, and we are inviting artists to come and join us. The group's explorations will be rooted in Action Theatre, the methodology developed by performance artist Ruth Zaporah. Action Theatre is a psycho-physical approach, that trains the body and mind to become more aware and present. Through structured improvisations, the group will train as an ensemble, together building performance skills, sharing creative ideas and reflections.
Sessions will run every Thursday, from 7:30pm - 9:30pm, at WMC.
If you'd like to join us, and be a part of this collective exploration, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org, outlining your interest in the project and your relevant eperience. We look forward to hearing from you!

Grants Available for Actor Parents and their Children
- support available for the children of actors from birth to graduation
The Actors' Children's Trust (www.actorschildren.org) is in the fortunate position of being able to increase its grants and support a lot more people. We fund actor-parents, where acting has been the main part of your professional career. Whilst most charities only give grants when you are unable to work, ACT knows that this isn't enough.
A depressing number of actors are forced to quit the profession when they become parents, simply because life becomes impossible. Earnings are too low and too unpredictable to organise and fund regular childcare. 'Free hours' barely exist for actors' unsocial work time. Schedules get changed at the last minute, meaning sudden needs for extra childcare. ACT is delighted that our childcare grants are helping actor-parents stay in the profession they love. Some parents welcome a monthly payment (e.g. £100 to £400), while others find a lump sum best at the start of a new job such as a tour.
Applications are processed within a month (or a few days in the case of crisis funding), and support can be one-off or continue for some years. Please help us spread the word about this resource for actor families by telling other actors. Also follows us on Twitter @ActorsChildren
ACT can help you with the following costs:
ACT does not pay for private education or private tutors.
Please do get in touch: email@example.com 020 7636 7868
We first check eligibility (usually just by looking at your CV if you are on Spotlight) and we usually fund people whose household income is under £40,000.
