Workshop – 10 March 2020

The theatre maker’s inspiration.

Directing for theatre on location, or site-specific theatre.

“Site-specific theatre is any type of theatrical production designed to be performed at a unique, specially adapted location other than a standard theatre.”

In tomorrow’s workshop, we will be researching and examining space as a source of inspiration for site-specific theatre. You will be invited to research the qualities and possibilities of a non-traditional stage and will be encouraged to create pieces inspired by the location.


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 since 2007.

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 Fringe Festival Dublin. Renée was production manager of ‘The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance’ and directed ‘Haven’ as part of Scene + Heard Festival 2019.

Workshop – 03 March 2020

Sure lookit! Tis Tuesday already!!

Tonight we have Shane Robinson at the helm of the No Drama workshop.

“With the main productions coming up soon this workshop shall cover audition technique and explore the relationship between the role of a director and the actor. Auditions can be unsettling, fully of anxiety and give you a bad case of those good old nervous butterflies but in tonight’s workshop we’ll work on tools to conquer those pesky beautiful flying critters. We’ll also focus on the do’s and don’ts of a director and how to get the most out of your actors freeing them rather than inhibiting them.”

Shane Robinson is a professional actor who hates talking about himself in third person. He teaches acting for camera and improv in Bow St, where he graduated from the full time programme for screen acting back in 2015. He’s pretty sound. He’s been a member of No Drama since it’s very inception back in 2008 and has had the privilege of being cast in eight main productions. He’s also processes the dire superpower of crying on cue. Get over yourself.

His recent credits include ‘This Nan’s life’ starring Catherine Tate, Boyz on Top (a web series about a failed boy band produced by failsafe films), ‘Vikings’ Season 6 and TV3’s ‘Jack Taylor’.
