Role – Volunteer Pierrot Troupe Performer

Pierrot training for professionals and amateur groups

The performing skills and techniques of the Pierrots and concert parties have largely been neglected in recent years.  We want to re-introduce this lively, fun and multi-skilled art form to Llandudno. In view of this, we shall offer training for local professional and amateur groups so that they may be able to develop their own Pierrot troupes in the future.

We will run a one-week course for successful Pierrot Troupe Performer  to give them an understanding of the history of Pierrots and identify some of the techniques and skills required to run their own Pierrot performances with the various groups they run. Monday 30th July-Sunday 5th August 2018 

2 Days Re-rehearsal 22nd & 23rd September 2018

The groups will come together, with Prom-Prom, to devise a group performance which will feature at the final performance weekend. Each group will also present individual pop-up performances around Llandudno during the weekend. 29th& 30th September 2018.
