This year YARD Theatre welcomes Sooree Pillay! We have a new exhibition in the Mezz at the NAE ‘In Conflict: Reflections On The Constant War In Iraq’. by Artist Satta Hashem. This work is all about the human experience of living through conflict. What kind of conflict do you have to deal with? Could you live through brutal times? How would you cope?
Our main exhibition at the NAE is ‘Realism In Rawiya’ starting on the 25th January in the main gallery space. This is a collective body of photographs from artists in Rawiya. This exploring different stories and political issues in the middle east.
YARD will be working around these themes and devising a project/performance based on them in April.
The YARD Theatre sessions are at the regular times of:
Every Wednesday, 5pm – 7pm
Age Range: 11 -25
Still – An Exhibition curated by young people for young people
New Art Exchange Young People’s Panel are group of young creatives passionate about contemporary arts practices. This season in partnership with Nottingham Trent University they will present their first exhibition showcasing some of the best photographic work from Nottingham’s young communities.

8 MARCH – 20 APRIL 2013
My names Dee Bonsior and i am playing ‘Banquo’ in the ‘Macbeth’ play taking place on the 8th Dec ’12′ at ‘New Art Exchange’ directed by Rachael Young
Banquo is a Scottish general in the king’s army and Macbeth’s friend (but is later is seen as a threat to Macbeth so Macbeth has him killed).
The things i enjoy about Playing Banquo is that he is generally quiet a loyal friend to Macbeth, and he also has a heart unlike Macbeth and seems to see the positive side of situations instead of the negative.
The things i dont like about Banquo are that i think he deserves alot more than he has, because he generally has got a good head on his shoulders, he appears to be quiet a deep thinker and likes to try and take on the roll of keeping the peace.
In rehearsals iv really enjoyed learning more about Shakespeares way of interpreting things and have also enjoyed working with all the other cast as they are all good at what they do and show dedication to their work, which keeps me going also.
When i first read the ‘Macbeth’ Script, to be honest i didnt know how we was all going to pull it off, what with all the strange Shakespeare words and the length of the script to along side this BUT with the spectacular tutoring from Rachael and Alison, we now know what all the script means (every word) and i really enjoy and appreciate the ‘Macbeth’ play now i fully understand it and also am glad to be a part of it.
