All of our workshops are immersive, practice based featuring exercises & demonstrative activities and delivered by a professional director or actor who has full teaching qualifications.

 

We can combine any text with a practioner and use exercises & approaches taken by a particular practitioner to explore the study text. Chekhov and Stanislavski work well together for example.

 

Our textual approach involves active through-line work where we explore a practioner's history or create a mind-map of the play.

 

In one hour we can give students a drama experience and an insight into a text.

In two hours we can give a practical overview and explore key areas as an introduction

or for revision.  In three to four hours we can conduct an in-depth study and use appropriate rehearsal techniques to let students learn by doing as if in the rehearsal room.

In six or eight hours we can workshop 'a play in a day' at actual rehearsal standard to really get to know the text, practitioner or study area. We think this is the best way to experience a play or the work of a practitioner if you can't be in a full production.
