Workshop – 19 October 2021

Happy Monday drama heads!

We’re super excited to be introducing you to yet another fantastic workshop facilitator: Theo Dennisson.

In tomorrow’s workshop, Theo would like to kick off a series of workshops he’ll be facilitating throughout the year, aiming to experiment with the idea of master-slave and status.

In tomorrow’s workshop, we will familiarise ourselves with the basic elements of status and then get comfortable with shifting from one side of the spectrum to the other. This year though we will also bring in a new element: communication on stage.

There will be plenty of opportunities to engage and act. So come out and join us tomorrow!

7 PM | Bunscoil Sancta Maria School on Synge Street | €10 for drop-in | €25 per calendar month. We accept both cash and card!
Oh, and if it’s your first one, this one’s on us!

Workshop – 12 October 2021

Happy Monday darlings! This weeks workshop will be hosted by none other than our very own Malcolm Bolton.

Collaboration is the cornerstone of theatre. Without it, we would all just be individuals, selfishly vying for the spotlight! The focus on this weeks workshop will be on letting go, trusting your scene partner and collaborating to make magic.

Malcolm is an Senior Application Support Specialist with Zarion software, and the secretary of No Drama’s committee. Malcolm has been a regular member of No Drama Theatre for 8 years. He has performed in a wide variety of roles over the years, both onstage and off.

Outside of actively engaging in No Drama events, monologue nights and shindig pieces, he has also spent his time studying Improvisational Comedy and sketch writing with Mob Theatre Dublin.

See your lovely faces tomorrow!!

Workshop – 05 October 2021

Happy Sunday lovelies!

This Tuesday we have another great facilitator for you! Shane Robinson will be in charge this Tuesday, 5th of October. This week’s workshop will be an induction on how to trust your instincts.

Do you ever wonder if what you’re doing on stage is either good or interesting enough? Am I making the right choice? Or hell, what am I even doing up here? By exploring our relationship with fear and failure, we’re able to overcome our creative blocks and begin to trust our instincts again. We’ll cover topics such as active listening, awareness of the environment, creative adjacency and acceptance and commitment to the moment.

One not to be missed! Hope to see you all on Tuesday!

2. Before a workshop, all door handles, posts, bathroom surfaces and surfaces in the meeting room and workshop room will be cleaned down with sterilizing solution.

3. This process is repeated after the workshop closes.

4. All members are required to sanitise their hands thoroughly upon entry to the school.

8. If you, a member, have a low immune system, an underlying health complaint, are in close contact with an elderly person or person of underlying health concerns or young children please consider them and yourselves before you make the decision to attend a workshop.

We’re very excited to be back and want to ensure we can enjoy No Drama in the safest possible manner. We will continue to organise our weekly workshops in person, however, if a time comes where we are required to suspend the weekly workshop we shall do so in accordance to health authority specifications.

Now go and have fun!
