Event description

Description

Weekly sessions from 30 Oct - 18 Dec, Monday evenings

For anyone interested in the connection between storytelling, theatre-making, creativity and mental health.

Performance that shares personal experience can be compelling in its honesty and openness, and holds the power to tap into an audience’s emotions and imaginations. Theatre can be a physical act, using movement to communicate, but how often when you start creating a piece do you begin with your body and how you feel?

This 8-week course focuses on that connection with the body and how to devise performance narratives that emerge from personal experience, creating stories performed through the body that are unique to you.

Whether you’re interested in developing performance that reveals the complexities of mental health or you want to strengthen your skills in creating meaningful, engaging stories, come along to the sessions and leave with a new confidence in integrating your body into the creative process. The outcome will include an ability to devise performance that deals with emotions and experience, telling stories that find resonance with people’s lives and that create a deeper connection with yourself and your audience.

We will use a range of techniques – from improvisation to mask work and guided visualisation – to help you draw out your inner stories and produce a short piece of theatre based on the material generated in the workshops. As Moving Pieces is informed by arts psychotherapy and how movement can help regulate the autonomic nervous system, you will also have the opportunity to learn body-based skills to support in-the-moment awareness, grounding and protection against stress.

These workshops are open to everyone, no prior experience of the creative arts required.

Time: 6.30pm - 9pm (Monday evenings)

Venue: The Classrooms, 60 Weston St SE1 3QJ (London Bridge)

Cost: £195 (£120 students). Payment can be arranged in installments.
