workshop – 23 February 2021

MONDAY IS NEARLY OVER, That can only mean one thing…

TOMOROW is workshop day!!!

This weeks workshop will be facilitated by Renée van de Schoor. We will take all the wonderful things we’ve learned over the last couple of weeks and put the cherry on top of this months theme: characters.

Through background work, physicality and voice we will focus on the interacting between our characters. This will be a fun workshop with loooots of social interaction!

Renée van de Schoor is a graduate from the University of the Arts Utrecht, with a bachelor’s degree in Theatre and Education and currently working for the prestigious Abbey Theatre.

Before joining No Drama Theatre, Renée has been active as an actor, director and assistant director, and has appeared in over 20 productions.

She has been extensively involved in No Drama Theatre, since joining in 2015, and has been director, actor, producer, production- and stage manager for numerous productions. After directing a sell-out production of ‘And Then There Were None’, she produced ‘Closer’. Furthermore, she appeared as Woman in ‘The Virtuous Burglar’, Lilly and Lilith in ‘She Kills Monsters’ and in performance piece ‘Heed, to the Mound’ as part of Dublin Fringe Festival. Renée was production manager of ‘The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance’ and directed ‘Haven’ as part of Scene + Heard Festival 2019.

Most recently, she directed ‘Mistaken’ as part of Short + Sweet Festival Dublin and was nominated for a price in the category ‘Best Director’.In September, she started her biggest challenge so far, becoming the Chair of No Drama Theatre in the midst of the current pandemic. Eager not to let it stop us from what we do best! Hope to see you all this Tuesday!

no drama bookworms

Do you like scripts? Do you like reading? Do you want to have a say in what productions No Drama Theatre put in?
Then we are looking for you!

We’re very excited to introduce to you No Drama Bookworms, led by Declan Ryan.

The Bookworms will be meeting weekly, working their way through play scripts delivered by, well, you! These scripts can be old. They can be new. They can be comedy, horror, mystery, drama… you get it. The only criteria we have is that the group has not already performed it!

We will be looking for approximately 10 members, who will be reading and shortlisting potential future productions for No Drama Theatre. We recommend any members interested in directing or assistant directing a main production, to join the group.

So what do you have to do to join the No Drama Bookworms?

• Submit a piece you want the Bookworms to read.
• Write a short synopsis about the play you submitted, why it should be considered and what you particularly like about the script.
• Give us a brief outline of your experience in Theatre and with No Drama Theatre.
