Motcomb Street Party 2013 supporting Intermission Youth Theatre

Intermission Youth Theatre

Intermission Youth Theatre in Education is an exciting new theatre company, helping young people get involved in unique drama experiences, delivering exceptional shows in London to passionate audiences, and we’re proud of what we do.

We have a long history of working with young people at risk of offending – those who live in tough communities and youths who lack the opportunity or support to fulfill their dreams. These young people work alongside other professional actors to produce exciting drama performances.

St Saviour’s in Knightsbridge is home to Intermission – a community of Christian performers, writers and artists who use the dynamic spaces at St Saviour’s for workshops, performances and exhibitions.

Once here they discover a family who hold to a promise to support them 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Some of their challenges are enormous but we are passionate about being a constant in their often chaotic lives and seeing a transformation in them.

IYT uses theatre as a tool to inspire, nurture and encourage. Theatre is about working as a team and learning to step into other people’s shoes. Intermission builds confidence and self-belief through creating a sense of belonging where young people can thrive.

Our work incorporates creativity across the school curriculum. We have a proven track record of giving young people the life skills and confidence they need to move on to further education, find employment and make life changing decisions.

Hard-hitting topics such as gang culture, post code rivalry, gun & knife crime are covered, as well as many more subjects close to young people living in London.

Through our work, we address issues such as communication, confidence, team work, reflection, weighing up choices, diversity and forgiveness. And all of this is done using the works of Shakespeare.

We take our plays into schools all over the UK in order to build awareness of young people’s issues, as well as to reach out to their communities
