The Primary Shakespeare Company offers bespoke multi-sensory and participatory arts projects based on Shakespeare’s plays for young people with a range of complex disabilities. Engagement and inclusivity are at the heart of the projects. Each one is shaped by the particular needs of the young people involved and seeks to offer them a space in which to express their perspective and celebrate their skills.

A bespoke project brings together a team of arts practitioners from a range of disciplines to work with teachers and young people. Together, they explore the world of a Shakespeare play through storytelling, music and dance, culminating in a live performance.

Currently the number of bespoke projects is very limited but The Primary Shakespeare Company is looking to develop its work in this field. Special Schools that are interested should contact The Primary Shakespeare Company.

Cost: These projects are funded but a contribution of £850 towards the overall costs is required.

About Primary Shakespeare Company: The Primary Shakespeare Company is a registered charity that aims to raise attainment and achievement in primary school children by engaging with Shakespeare. It runs a number of arts-based projects, sending theatre practitioners into primary schools in London and Kent to explore and perform Shakespeare’s plays. The Primary Shakespeare Company also works with Special Schools, developing fully inclusive participatory arts projects for young people with complex educational needs.
