**FREE Workshop and performance opportunity!**
NMT Automatics are bringing Dido & Aeneas: Remixed to Charlton Park, Canterbury on Saturday the 12th of November at 8pm.
A play, adapted from Virgil’s The Aeneid mixing Purcell’s opera with a new sampled, beat driven soundscape; text, drama and urban/lyrical dance and combining professional actors with a ‘Greek Chorus’ of community participants.
As such, this Saturday (11am onwards) NMT Automatics needs you!
We will be offering local young people and community members the FREE opportunity to join the team, to learn the art of the ‘Greek Chorus’ and perform alongside the cast in the performance on the 12th!
Check out the Research and development trailer, including interviews with
Redbridge Youth Theatre Workshop members who were involved, to get a taste of what you’ll be joining in with: https://vimeo.com/146543873
This opportunity is free for participants and is open to anyone 13 +!
An epic tale of a people torn from their land by war, searching for a new home, whilst struggling against a climate of prejudice and fear: a tragedy that is sadly still relevant today. NMT Automatics bring this classic to a contemporary audience in an engaging & accessible way.
Can love conquer all? Can a vulnerable nation overcome ‘fear of the other’?

In association with Greenwich Theatre and Redbridge Drama Centre, and supported by Arts Council England, the Royal Borough of Greenwich, The Classical Association, and Old Vic New Voices.

The piece will be performed 3 times over the course of the evening and focus on Aeneas and his travels in Sicily!
Suffice to say the exact location of the performance is pretty special and will be revealed shortly..
