WORKSHOP – 8 JANUARY

Now that the mince pies have settled and the bottles of prosecco have stopped popping, it’s time to get your kicks in other ways and what better way than coming to our first workshop of the year!

Our first workshop will be facilitated by No Drama veteran, Kate Cosgrave.

“Building from neutral”

In this workshop, we’ll break down the fundamentals of different movement forces to find building blocks for creating a character’s physicality, bring ourselves into neutral and explore the power and possibility of what we can let the audience read from doing “the least possible” with our bodies.

Note from Kate: wear comfy clothes and keep it simple because we shall be moving!

WORKSHOP – 18 DECEMBER

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

In tonight’s workshop, a.k.a. the last workshop of the year, we do not have just one, not just two, but a banging six facilitators in store for you! Yes… You’re right! It’s our biannual All-Star Workshop.

After these six heroes have enriched us with their wisdom, we will be gathering in the Camden Exchange for some lovely Christmas celebrations.

We are super excited! Hopefully, you are too!

WORKSHOP – 11 DECEMBER

Happy Sunday to all!

Next Tuesday is the penultimate workshop of the year and we are in a festive spirit for this one.

This week we will be looking at character creation and development through the lens of that old seasonal chestnut Charles Dickens: A Christmas Carol! Using this classic text as a launching point, we will be looking at our characters past, distant present and their future before returning to the modern day to see the effects of what our journey has had on them!

Guaranteed to get you in the Christmas Spirit this workshop is one not to be missed!

If it’s your first workshop it’s on us!

WORKSHOP – 4 DECEMBER

After his last workshop being such a big success, and to conclude our block: Scene Creation, Jay Cosgrave is returning to Synge Street CBS to teach us the basics of stage combat!

Stage combat is a specialised technique in theatre designed to create the illusion of physical combat without causing harm to the performer. Teaching us the ropes, Jay will educate us in how to throw safe punches, kick one in the vital parts and stage a believable fight. All for our viewing pleasure.

For all of us to enjoy this workshop in a safe manner, it is of utmost importance you arrive at the school on time and don’t miss the health and safety briefing.

Wear comfortable clothing that won’t prevent you from moving around and attacking your enemies!

WORKSHOP – 27 NOVEMBER

While we had promised you a workshop in Stage Combat, due to unforeseen circumstances the wonderful Jay Cosgrave, unfortunately, had to postpone this festival of (fake) punches to the 4th of December.

But not to worry, we will have a fantastic facilitator taking the wheel this Tuesday, with his expertise in improv this is promising to be an extremely helpful workshop. This Tuesday Dan McCormack will provide you with an intro to improv
and we will be working on a devised narrative.

Your first workshop is on us!

Hope to see you there.

WORKSHOP – 20 NOVEMBER

Good evening! We hope your Monday was short and sweet, and even more so we hope you’re looking forward to tomorrow!

In this week’s workshop, we will be elaborating on this month’s theme, scene creation, focusing on the basic conditions a scene requires. Starting by defining the “who”, “where” and “what”, then we will focus the most important and interesting part of a scene: the conflict. Exploring what kinds of conflict we can find and use these to create our own scenes.

Will this be your first workshop? Then it’s on us!
