NEW WORK FROM PETRE DOBRE

In 2019 Petre Dobre received an award from the Create:Inclusion Fund backed by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland. These funds have enabled his personal progression, his development of creative and professional practice and allowed him to follow through on opportunities to take professional and creative risks. As a result of that reward Petre is currently developing a new piece of work called Squirrel, exploring the use of sign language, physicality and visual storytelling to create an accessible performance for deaf and hearing children and their families.
