The incredibly talented deaf artist Rebecca Anne Withey wittily performs the Sugababes song with her ‘split personalities’. Rebecca inspired us to add a new category to our blog: Outstanding Artists. (Find out more about Rebecca’s work on The Dancing Phoenix.)

Set in 1980’s Gibraltar, complete with Michael Jackson and Indiana Jones costumes at the fancy dress party and Shakespeare’s songs set to 1980’s-style music, it is so well done that it makes Shakespeare immediate and accessible to almost anyone. We have been taking our pupils to see the play—their first ever Shakespeare—and they have absolutely loved it.
Those who have experienced the live participation of theatre—the feeling of being part of something extraordinary, the emotional and intellectual transformation—know that a single performance can change lives. We founded the Shakespeare Club to offer this joy to as many young people as we can.
We are very grateful to the cast and crew, and for the generosity of Wyndham’s Theatre, a Delfont Mackintosh theatre, for making this possible.
We are astonished and delighted by the talented Rebecca Anne Withey, also known as the Dancing Phoenix, She shares her gifts and skills online, on TV and in live performances.
The extraordinary Graeae Theatre Company is playing The Iron Man at the Greenwich + Docklands International Festival on the 24th through 26th of June.
Graeae (pronounced ‘gray eye’) is an amazing inclusive theatre company in Hackney. Learn more about them here. This is what they have to say about The Iron Man:
Ted Hughes’s classic children’s story, The IRON MAN, clanks, crunches and munches its way across the country’s summer cultural festival season in a new street arts adaptation of this beautiful tale of understanding and tolerance.
The performances are free, and you are welcome to come with us for the show on Saturday at 2PM. For more information, download the flyer.
