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!

WORKSHOP – 13 NOVEMBER

November is all about Scene Creation and we have found some of the finest workshop facilitators to engage you with this theme!

In tomorrow’s workshop, we’ll be workshopping 3 scenes – just like we would in a rehearsal. The main scenes will be from: The Stephen Briggs adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Night Watch and Noises off by Michael Frayn.

We’ll be looking at a little bit of everything, touching as many different sides of creating a scene and we expect everyone will find something of value in this workshop.

If it’s your first one, it’s on us.

WORKSHOP – 6 NOVEMBER

We are really, very, excited to announce to you, this Tuesday’s workshop!

To conclude our Character Building and Story Telling block, we have a fantastic workshop for you: Storytelling with Aron Hegarty of Candlelit Tales.

The world is a story, we just need to know how to tell it best. Beginning with warm-ups to loosen the artist within, we will set off on a journey through narration and find your own unique style of telling your tale. We are all storytellers, after all, we are brought up on stories, we create stories and we frame the world through stories, so join us to find the storyteller within you and who knows what stories you might tell.
If this is your first No Drama workshop, it’s on us.
No Drama will facilitate the introduction and Aron will be joining us from 7.30pm.

WORKSHOP – 30 October

Hope you’re all enjoying your bank holiday Monday! We are delighted to inform you about tomorrow’s workshop, based on active listening.

In this modern age, so much is communicated throughout the day it can be hard to siphon the important information from the chaff. Listening is a skill that needs to be trained and exercised, especially for actors. Learning to communicate on stage begins with paying careful attention to what others are saying to us.

If this is your first workshop, it’s on us!

WORKSHOP – 23 OCTOBER

While we hope you’re enjoying the week’s end, we are thrilled to inform you about Tuesday’s workshop theme!

You will understand that focusing on listening to the truth of the present moment is the only thing you need to create compelling, smart, truthful, and surprising scenes.

If this is your first workshop, it’s free!
