The Workshop

We will warm up together, shaking away preconceptions that can hamper performance and I will lead you through practical exercises for the body and some devised theatre processes to create compositional performance material. But most importantly, 'Theatre Lab' is a physical-theatre workshop; it is a place to explore, experiment & play. It is for beginners to the more experienced, for dancers, performance artists and poets, theatre-makers, actors – it is for anyone who likes to MOVE and is happy to share with each other (no public performance). For all art forms, for the creatively curious and for all intrigued by or involved in theatre making.

- Raise awareness and confidence

- Test out thematic ideas

- Invent something new

- Share and develop your theatre skills

However, emphasis on skill is not so important but a willingness to engage in the activities exercises and share with each-other in a safe environment.

The framework for exploration for Theatre Lab includes, but is not defined by, working with ‘characterisation through walking’, exploring the ‘elements’, physicality of the human ‘emotions’, a creative–writing exercise and storytelling. Working on performance composition using story/text, song/sounds, dance/movement, to then create a new story and present them to each-other as a way of learning throughout the duration of the workshop.

You are welcome to arrive, 15mins before the workshop starts to do your own physical warm-up and stretching. The Kitchen is under refurbishment but there are plenty of places to eat or purchase food before or after the workshop, in the town. Please bear in mind, the workshop is quite physical, light lunch/snacks will not weigh you down. Please wear comfy clothes you can stretch and move about in, bring layers to keep warm, a bottle of water and an open mind.
