An award-winning theatre company, C&T work within education, the community and the private sector to encourage creative learning through a combination of drama and new media.
We've worked with C&T on several projects:
A visual identity for after-school drama and technology club, Act Smart. The identity includes a range of 'badges' which are earned by demonstrating specific skills while completing a variety of 'missions', such as making a music video or solving a graphic-novel-based murder mystery.
“Re-inventing documentary drama in the age of YouTube, C&T’s own brand of Living Newspapers turn your students into citizen journalists.”
The Living Newspaper site is ultra-simple, featuring three columns: one links to recent news stories; the second shows some of the video/dramas that have been produced, based on actual news; the third column features more about the project, and tips on how to make your own Living Newspaper.
Vlex is a new and evolving online game – with a twist. Developed by C&T for their network of schools, it’s played by syncing a Wii controller to a computer, and allows players to shape, control and adapt 3-D environments; with new levels added by the young people themselves.
We designed and built the site to help C&T launch the game at the International Drama in Education Research Institute (IDiERI) conference which was held in Sydney, Australia in Summer 2009.
A Shakespearean-based, technological Top Trumps, C&T devised 2nd Folio for their schools network. It allows players to interpret the language and meanings behind some of the Bard's most potent quotes using traditional playing cards, QR codes/readers, online video and drama.
Performed and played across C&T's network of schools in the UK, and internationally, the project combines rigorous drama methods with innovative use of digital media and ICT.
We worked with C&T on a joint project with Oxfam – see separate case study: Millennium Development Goals app.
We also designed and built C&T's corporate website – see C&T case study.
