The Grief Project

Glass House Dance are researching a new performance, developed from first hand experiences of grief. We are exploring the themes through dance, theatre, spoken word and music, with professional and community performers of all ages, lived experiences and cultural backgrounds in Norwich.

This is a research project commissioned by Norwich Theatre with a public sharing, with a view to creating a multimedia performance which tackles difficult and often uncomfortable subjects in a meaningful, touching and humorous way.

This isn’t a therapeutic process but a place to express experience creatively and artistically and to discover what we share through loss and grief, and how it is unique to each individual.
Ways to get involved:


If you have a story about grief, loss or bereavement you would like to share on camera, we would love to hear from you.
Interviews will take place at Norwich Theatre Royal, Stage Two
February Thursday 13th 10am-8pm and Friday 14th 10am-4pm


We are looking for a cast of community performers who are interested in exploring the themes of the physical experiences of grief that come up in the interviews with us. There will be a short performance of some of the sketches we have been researching with an invited audience in a safe and welcoming environment.

Performers will be required for the following dates:

Saturday 21st, 9.30-5pm
Saturday 28th, 9.30-5pm

Sunday 5th, 9.30-5pm
Tuesday 14th, 6.30-8.30pm
Saturday 18th, 9.30-5pm
Friday 24th, 2-6pm (tech rehearsal)
Saturday 25th, 2-9.30pm (performance)
