In short, we want to:
- make theatre accessible to everyone;
- foster a cooperative approach to theatre, i.e. every one’s contribution matters;
- we welcome individuals interested in acting as well as in non-acting responsibilities (e.g. costumes, props and creative writing).
7MRP-The Hague is an amateur theatre group, based on acting and directing experiences of its founders in Italy and Denmark. Focusing initially on improvisation acting, over time the participants decided to add also script-based work to the performances. The language of the activities is English and the group consists of people from many countries and cultures who want to experiment with amateur theatre.
This is what is unique about us:
We want to promote acting and theatre experiences and to break access barriers to them. We are a non-profit and fun-centric group where previous experience is not required and whose performances can speak to a broad public
Everything is done by ourselves: from writing our own scripts to staging and performing them. We believe that the value of our creative work lies with not only in the final result but mostly in the process and continuous improvement leading to it. Learning-by-doing and cross-feedback are powerful tools for that
We use a method we call “cooperative improvisation-to-script theatre”; a blend of improvisation and script-based theatre which is driven, from concept to performance, by everyone’s contribution and facilitated by members who take part to the acting itself
We aim at empowering people to discover new ways to express one-selves and to communicate with others. In life, people are constantly wearing masks. Through acting experience, one can finally connect with its own self beneath the mask.
Still, having fun together is the most important part of our projects. We suspend judgement and encourage being spontaneous while enjoying and sharing the experience with others.
We welcome individuals interested in acting as well as in non-acting responsibilities (e.g. costumes, props and creative writing).
