JUMP Jamaica – Physical Theatre Project
PKGen’s Chris Grant is currently in the Caribbean, working on the development of the JUMP programme – a Youth and Community Arts project developed alongside National Theatre of Scotland, British Council and Manifesto Jamaica over the last 4 years.
Chris will be visiting the existing group in Kingston, Jamaica before travelling to Montego Bay and then on to Port of Spain, Trinidad, to discuss the launch of two new JUMP projects over the coming year. JUMP fuses Parkour and Physical Theatre to tell the stories of the young people in these communities and their journey into adulthood. The Kingston show – ‘RUNFree’ has performed twice in Jamaica and also at the HOMEAWAY International festival in Glasgow in 2016.
