A Multi-media project at The Core at Corby Cube is set to help young people through performance skills.

The Core at Corby Cube is running the project with performance arts organisation, Urban Angel.

Young people in Corby and Kettering, aged between 16 and 18, who are not in work or education, have been working with Urban Angel during the summer to create a new site-specific piece.

Short Shift combines cutting-edge contemporary arts and multi-media technologies and will be performed at the Church of the Epiphany at 2pm and 7pm today and tomorrow.

Urban Angel is an East Midlands based group which supports young people by offering training opportunities to develop their performance and media arts skills.

During the project, young people are taking part in projection mapping and creating digital music, as well as developing drama and spoken word skills.

The sessions offer the flexibility to try out all the art forms or to focus on a preferred area of interest, which can be on the stage, backstage or both.

People taking part in the project have also had the chance to gain a Bronze Arts Award accreditation.

Short Shift will be performed at the Church of the Epiphany in Elizabeth Street, Corby, today (Thursday) and tomorrow at 2pm and 7pm. Tickets are £3 each and can be booked by calling the Ticket Office on 01536 470 470 or by visiting www.thecorecorby.com.
