Lights, action, teach!

DISCOVER innovative directing techniques
ENRICH your teaching skills and practice, and deepen your knowledge of how to build a theatre company
COLLABORATE with renowned theatre-makers Chris Drummond, Jascha Boyce and Daisy Brown.

This masterclass is a full-day program and includes a number of different sessions. Participants will select two workshops that they wish to attend when they purchase their tickets. There is limited space in each workshop and you are encouraged to book soon.

How does a company of theatre-makers work collaboratively to create an original piece of text-based theatre?
Text-based creation presented by Chris Drummond 
Chris will lead you through his signature process to draw themes and abstract ideas from existing text and develop these into dramatic narrative. You will experience how a company negotiates the different stages of creating new work, from concept to devising and writing, to rehearsals and final production. Chris will provide you with techniques and approaches to take back to your classroom for working with actors and the creative production team to realise a clear vision.    

How might you create meaningful, performer-centred work entirely from scratch? 
Devised creation presented by Daisy Brown
Daisy will lead you through her unique devised theatre process to develop entirely original work in real-time. As theatre-makers you will create work collaboratively through play and provocation. You will generate and shape original material completely from scratch, and craft meaningful narratives that activate intimate relationships between performer and audience. The experience will enable you to take-away and adapt Daisy’s process for devising unique, performer-centred work with your student-artists. 

How can you, as an artist, director or maker explore a theme or narrative through physicality? 
Physical creation presented by Jascha Boyce
Jascha will lead you through her original approach of physically interrogating an idea through physical theatre-making processes to develop movement and images for expressing underlying concepts for an audience. From the starting point of a conventional theatre text you will draw on an idea or theme as a launch-pad for a unique physical creation process. You will acquire a repertoire of physical tasks that can be applied to develop and realise any dramatic text, idea or concept in a classroom context.
