Apologies, it seems to be a while since I updated the blog!
Hope you have been able to follow the Cindy Claes adventures on social media and through the Newsletter in the meanwhile.
So here we go… I am catching up on the blog!
Faith Drama Productions celebrated their 10 years anniversary! Who is Faith Drama Productions?
Well, let me tell you this, a team that supports unconditionally every artistic soul hungry for growth. Their work ethos is high, the quality of the work that they produce is jaw-dropping and the heart with which each show is developped has brought tears of joy to all involved.
Gbemisola Ikumelo, the woman behind it all, the founder, the one that never gave up, on the organisation as well as every young or experienced talent walking through the door.
I am feeling proud and blessed I have been part of the Faith Drana journey for 8 years now, and I can’t wait for the next few decades to unfold!
Faith Drama Productions commissioned me for my first full length production: Voices in the Alleyway. An experience after which I decided to never ever play small again.
I remember sitting down in January 2011 for a meeting with Gbemi and we talked about doing a small project together…
After 2 months the project had grown and we made a trailer:
In June 2011, we had a one week run at the Cochrane Theatre in Central London!! I had worked with an extended creative team from music producers to projection
This is what the productions became… we also had an international cast member all the way from the Krump community in Los Angeles, which was the starting point of my 1000 Pieces Puzzle vision:
We celebrated Faith Drama Productions’ 10th anniversary at Stratford Circus, a night of new plays, theatre and dance shows. Short documentaries were screened including one featuring… me! I will release the footage as soon as it is online. I have to be honest, it brought tears to my eyes.
Thank you Faith Drama for the love and growth you ahve provided me and so many talents across these 10 years.
Cindy Claes Productions is now an Associate Artist of the company.
