A miniature version of our regular political new writing event that uses theatre to encourage conversations about the issues of today. This workshop applies writing and devising exercises to topical stimuli in order to create short pieces of provocative political theatre.
An introduction to the basics of what we think makes a great ensemble. Exercises in this workshop encourage playfulness, bravery and generosity. Participants get an insight into how we prepare a company to make theatre together.
A look at how we deconstruct and explore existing texts in order to stage fresh contemporary productions. Participants are equipped with deductive directorial tools for exploding a script and the approaches to text we use with actors in rehearsals.
An anarchic session that encourages participants to embrace failure and tell stories expressionistically. Participants discover how we use games, mess and impulsivity at different stages of our making process to create epic theatre.
An introduction to how we use verbatim as a starting point for devising our investigative projects. Participants are introduced to inside-out and outside-in approaches to character-making, fresh improvisation tools and dramatic duologue-making.
Whether political activist or political novice, this empowers participants to calcify opinions and discover forms to make them heard. This workshop offers devising and vocal techniques that put the opinions in the room centre stage.
