Art Breakers is back! 

The out-of-the-ordinary performance group for young people in Sheffield, run by theatre innovators Forced Entertainment in partnership with us here Theatre Deli Sheffield, returns this September. 

Art Breakers is open to all young people aged 11-16, and no performing experience is necessary. Absolutely all you need to be an Art Breaker is energy, a taste for new ideas and commitment to working as a group. 

Art Breakers is grown from Forced Entertainment’s longstanding and acclaimed practice of experimentation and Theatre Deli’s focus on pushing the boundaries of traditional theatre. It is a space and place for breaking the rules, inventing new work, invading the stage and making a brilliant mess.

The group meets on Tuesday evenings, 4:30-6:30pm here at Theatre Deli Sheffield, working together learning to collaborate, devise and surprise.
