“If all I have is an empty space, and a story to tell, all I need is someone to see me bring that story to life” - Bhavik Parmar, aged 16.
Theatre should be exciting for both those who are creating it, as well as those who are witnessing it. Without a thrill of some sort, a lifelong love of theatre cannot flourish. For some children there is a thrill in having a part to say, a moment to shine and a deserving applause to bow to. For others there is a thrill in having their words, characters and their imagined worlds materialised. For me there is a thrill in allowing children to freely make decisions, explore creative possibilities and passionately sculpt the imagined worlds we create together.
Panorama Drama became a company from the idea that young people are constantly creating stories in their minds, their books, their drawings, their conversations with others and more - but rarely do they get a chance to physically recreate a fragment of their imagination.
