The classes will focus on multidisciplinary approaches to developing skills in devising theatre through various exercises and training methods. All work will be developed collaboratively from scratch rather than using existing scripts.
The focus is on the creation process. Using a stimulus such as a found object, image, text or improvisation to generate material for performance. Movement, text, audio, one-to-one performance and audience participation will be explored.
Throughout the classes, there will be opportunities to develop your own short performances with the potential for further development. You will be given the chance to work solo, in small groups and as an ensemble. You are part of the creation process, led and structured by Lauren Hart. Classes will end with a performance sharing to an invited audience.
Aimed at anyone interested in collaborative performance making. No prior experience required. Please wear comfortable clothes, be prepared to work barefoot or in studio shoes and bring a bottle of water. Participants are required to attend all sessions.
