What’s happening in 2016 I hear?

An award from Awards for All will allow us to guarantee a project SCT has been determined to deliver. The voices of women with Autistic traits who have yet to achieve an assessment, will be SCT focus from April 1st, the launch event at 3MT in Afflecks on Oldham Street, M11JG

Wouldn’t it be grand if Susan Boyle could come and better still, be patron of the project which is a five year project. This is the first year.

Women of a certain age don’t always have computer skills which they need to research their RIGHTS! This is one of the first things SCT and its team will be helping with. ‘1:1 hasn’t gone’ is the Voices motto. 1:1 is what the members of this group need. Everything is online now. But it’s not much good to you if you can’t operate a computer for the purpose of communicating and discovering the plethora of information that’s out there.

Autism is a disability that’s here to stay. But it’s the mildest form, Asperger in older people that has gone unnoticed.The damming truth is: ‘they haven’t managed’ which is an assumption in society and a quote often read or heard.

9/10 women with Aspergers have allergies and digestive problems which can lead to life threatening conditions: for example, chronic pancreatitis can go unnoticed in those with allergies which create excessive mucous. This becomes a problem in the digestive mechanism. The Mcr Voices project leader has this problem. She had no idea the sinuses are part of the digestive system. Enough said. So you see, ‘they haven’t managed’ and this is just one example of the symptoms experienced by a mature Asperger female.

Come to the launch if you believe you’re one of these women. Contact Gina on 0161 834 4517 for more information.

We need support getting the message out there and we need to shout from the rooftops that the city centre has a social drop in facility for women with Asperger.

Thank you!

Just got on with it today following training this morning with Ann Strachan. It was an enlightening morning.

It’s determination and patience for this project. It’s not had a great start.

I wonder if sometimes something can be so simple: it can’t be true! But it is. I’ve given up on the funds-for-fees. The feedback from the very audience it was intended made it clear: it’s a non-starter.

Go with the flow is what I say: Square Circle Theatre is moving from strength to strength. Maybe it’s the right year to focus on the projects created for Women and girls with Autism/AD.

We’ve had interest from investors on this concept. That indicates it’s a good product. But the audience it’s aimed at, are just not coming forward.

Maybe keeping it as a concept to use for the local community may work. Let’s see.

 http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/lets-move-and-shake-with-poundsfunder-movement the local community is a new audience. Please share if you think it’s suitable for a group in your community. Thank you

gina@manchestershakespearecompany.co.uk welcomes your questions and comments. There’s often something staring at you but you still don’t see it. That could be the answer.

The theatre company has a strong community. But this year, we need to strengthen it further. 

Emphasis on training those interested in acting without the three year degree is a building block they can use to forge their motives in the Manchester scene. Some will break in. Others may find it too demanding. But that’s the nature of the beast as they say.

Hello, this year’s project will support communication skills for those on the high end autistic spectrum disorder. Ages 18 to 30 are welcome to apply.

We expect to start the project week commencing 17th August and week commencing 24th August when the group will work with 15 to 17 year olds from the National Citizen Society.

We’re currently looking for a specialist in Physical Theatre and funds to support their fees. If you can help or want to volunteer to support this project then please get in touch with Gina on 0161 834 4517. Can those interested in participating in the project also contact Gina. Thank you!

Last year we supported the Creative Employment Project delivered by the Arts Council and Manchester City Council by employing Apprentices and Interns.

Your support this year is very welcome. You can donate on our website: squarecircletheatre.co.uk

Your donation will be gratefully received and acknowledged. Thank you once again.
