Liverpool Empire Youth Musical Theatre Company presents Hidden Elements, exploring the concept of performance as ritual. You will be invited into a world that you wouldn’t usually have access to, and given a glimpse of the aspects of performance that are ordinarily concealed.
What happens either side of a performance – before the curtain rises and the lights go down? How often do we see actors apply their stage makeup and step into their costumes? Yet they do this, without fail, each time they perform; it is a ritual.
From the vocal warm ups and body stretches to the line learning and soul searching, there is so much more to performance than what is presented on stage. Join the Company as they put some of the hidden elements of performance under the spotlight, raising the curtain on what happens backstage and in the rehearsal room to create performance itself.
