Process Theatre Training for Actors with an intellectual disability

Rhythm Room was set up in 2009 by Nicola Kealy and Mischa O' Mahony in response to the need for an accessible training space for Actors with an intellectual disability.
Our work is inclusive which means we work with able bodied and disabled actors. The work we create focuses on the ability of all our actors and their unique view of and approach to this tricky business we call 'life'. It is this view and approach that informs the Theatre we make.
The focus is on developing our students creativity, expression and communication skills through Drama. The work is done through a group process that contains and holds the creative space so that the actors can immerse themselves safely in the creative and exploratory process of theatre training.
The training process is layered and seeks to build upon the students existing skills through repetition, reflection and discussion.
Rhythm Room seeks to make the art of Theatre accessible to everyone and to take this a step further by creating unique productions. We are committed to constantly bringing quality Integrated Theatre to the stage and enabling performers from all backgrounds to reach their full potential.
