Each of these workshops are available as a short introduction or to form a full term of work.
They are based on the performance work we produce and reflect our professional practice.
We offer many more practitioner, play & subject based workshops that are suitable for schools and venues. Please ask if you require something more specific.

We begin with the latest news or a particular factual story and work from there to explore, discuss and develop ideas through drama. This workshop would support work on Brecht or Boal and is great for looking at current and historic events.
We begin with an object or artwork, then explore it in context through storytelling and drama. Based on Image Theatre concepts this is an accessiable and fun, creative way of introducing and interpreting exhibits and artefacts.
Explore any text with our highly active, involving text analysis workshop-there will be a little sitting down and reading (but not much!). We get a text 'on its feet' quickly and explore throughlines, character and events in the text.
We offer 2 hour, full day and longer courses on each of these key practitioners. The 2 hour session is great and an intro or a revision session. The day course gives a good grounding and a long course will develop a practical and useful understanding.
Explore your text by applying a particular practitioners techniques. We will take an overview and concentrate on key scenes using practical exercises.
These workshops can be pitched at almost any level from adult beginner, to any key stage including GCSE and A level. We also offer professional level courses for teachers.
