Dyslexia Festival North London 2nd November

Postby markR » Tue Sep 21, 2010 4:00 pm

Dyslexics are predominantly considered to be poor readers, bad writers and disorganised. Not desirable traits for a child, or partner and certainly not something you look for in an employee. Such a person could never be a talented playwright, right?

Wrong. Dyslexic story makers have a natural ability to think visually, and being 3-D thinkers they are able to construct new dimensions, both cinematic and theatrical. msft has consistently worked with dyslexic practitioners since 2007 to raise awareness of the creative benefits neuro-diversity brings to the arts.

From our humble beginnings in pub venues, under previous festival titles of 'Dys(the)lexi' and 'dyssing-mondyas', we celebrate our biggest venture so far, the DYS-PLA festival of new plays by dyslexic practitioners.

We kick off the DYS-PLA festival with a charity Gala night and wine reception, inviting well known figures with an interest in the event to witness tour-de-force of dyslexic creativity.

The evening will present extracts from each play programmed throughout the week, along with a full scale production of Matthew Scurfield's dramatised autobiography, 'I Could be Anyone'.

For more information on the festival as a whole, or to be involved as a guest speaker please contact the festival Producer Lennie Varvarides on dyspla@makingtheatrework.com or by calling 07917157748.
