Prime Cut Productions delivers a consistent Programme of Community Engagement throughout the year. Tailored Outreach Programmes are developed and delivered in conjunction with our Productions. We also run one special large-scale Community Engagement Production each year - working with a wide range community groups from across Belfast and Northern Ireland.
2013 was filled with exciting projects. Kaleidoscope bought communities from across Belfast together, exploring their relationship with the city centre. It culminated in an interactive immersive showcase in the city centre which drew over 100 people to share the experiences and stories explored by the participants over the 9 month project.
Next up was the People's Choir, an ambitious Choral Project which saw us work with over 500 people from marginalised communities in Northern Ireland, Bosnia Herzegovina and Slovenia to create 5 People’s Choirs in Derry, Belfast, Sarajevo, Mostar and Ljubljana. Each Choir worked with some of Europe’s finest musicians to learn and perform 5 songs in a variety of languages. The Choirs were then integrated into the production of The Conquest of Happiness, sing live at each performance and giving each participant a unique opportunity to be an integral part of a major International Theatre Event..
2014 is going to be equally exciting. We are currently delivering "Ensemble" – an exploratory theatre project to over 15 community groups across Belfast. But that’s only just the start - we have other plans which will be released over the next couple of months, so keep your eyes on the website!!
