Stories of ReBels Who Changed the World

ReBels Who Changed The World SQ1920x1920 orange

Tuedays 5pm - 9pm at Barbican Theatre

Stories of ReBels Who Changed The World are for anyone aged 12-25.
This project will be inspired by real life Rebels who have shaken up the course of history! We will take inspiration from people that changed the music, dance or social  scene and you will pick who they are. Who inspires you? Who is important to you? How do you want to celebrate them? 
As an ensemble and as individuals you can take responsibility for a chapter and explore a person, a group of people and their culture through an art form or fusion of art forms e.g. music tracks, films, dance styles, monologues,  films,  spoken word and original music or music covers.
You will work with  a professional team to train and build a show in small groups or as individual ReBels being coached and mentored through the process. 
There will also be two large ensemble pieces we will be working on together as a big team for the full term as a mix of ReBels and professionals.  Think punk cat walks, voguing, rave mash ups, MC and spoken word riffs, commercial roller skating routines, hip hop theatre, expressive solos and live music with spoken word or parkour theatre.
The Sky is the limit!
The summer term runs from w/c 2 May - w/c 11 July

How to join ReBels?

There are two forms for you to choose from: 
Form 1: for people joining ReBels for the first time. So we need a little more info from you, plus the sessions you want to join, and your £20 summer term fee payment
Form 2: for people who are already ReBels and have already paid their £60 annual membership fee (which includes the summer term). We already have your main details so just need to know which sessions you want to join in Spring 2022.
(and no worries if you change your mind and want to change sessions after you've signed up / paid - if there's still space in the other sessions we'll swap you over)

Why We Exist...

We believe that young people's creativity has no limits or restrictions

How we do the Why...

You can't be what you can't see.

A young person should encounter endless different creative outlets and opportunities to help find the best way to express themselves. Without financial, social or cultural barriers.

What ReBels do...

We provide project focussed training groups that allow young people to experience and develop with mutiple artforms and styles, while focussing on one production or performance. We listen to our young people to find out what they want - if we don't already cover subjects or artforms they want that's how we find out and develop with and for them.


In order to ensure our young people are still able to engage with activities and their Practitioners we have launched B-Hive which is an online resource featuring videos of tutorials, challenges and activities suitable for all involved with Performance Training classes (as well as others who might just want to create or move while they are in isolation)
