We are offering a range of schools workshops through the 2019-20 academic year. These can be tailored to support your curriculum and adapted for both GCSE and A Level. Take advantage of an early bird offer of 3 workshops for £500 if you make the booking  by 30 September 2019! DEVISING & WORKING AS AN ENSEMBLE This workshop encourages groups to work as an ensemble to create devised theatre and provides a series of tools with which you can create devised ensemble work. PHYSICAL THEATRE & DEVISING This workshop will focus on creating and devising physical theatre. It will look at creating physical sequences, working as an ensemble to explore ideas and relationships, an physicalising characters. USING PHYSICAL THEATRE TO EXPLORE SET TEXTS Using physical theatre and ensemble exercises, we explore one of your set texts, opening up the story, characters, relationships and images within the text, finding a deeper understanding of it and new ideas for staging. ACTIVE APPROACHES TO THE TEXT This workshop explores set texts by encouraging students to think like a theatre company.  It explores plays from the point of view of different theatre creatives: directors, actors, set and costume designers.  Students will analyse scenes as if they were producing the play themselves, and so develop a literary but intensely personal response.  They also explore how writers create their work, and devise their own short responses through utilising ‘found texts’ which they discover all around them.

“Why should I continue to be tolerant? When the world has been so intolerant of me.” Trojan Horse was a local story that hit the national press, accusing ‘hardline’ Muslim teachers and governors of plotting extremism in Birmingham schools. Adapted from the real-life testimonies of those at the heart of the UK Government's inquiry, critically acclaimed theatre-company LUNG investigates what really happened. Originally developed with Leeds Playhouse, Amnesty International Freedom of Expression & Fringe First Award-winning production, Trojan Horse is the story of a community torn apart by racial division, ‘British values’ and the culture of Prevent. “Perhaps the bravest and most astutely political of shows…relevant, terrifying and beautifully told...” ★★★★ WhatsOnStage ★★★★ - The Independent ★★★★ - The Scotsman

From the cotton mills of the Lancashire hills to the big smoke of London, we follow Annie, a young mill lass as she fights for her right to vote. However, the fight for change is never easy, and young Annie must learn to defend herself and her fellow suffragettes from those that seek to stop them. Suffrajitsus assemble! Suffrajitsu tells the story of one young girl and how she learns that being small doesn’t mean you can’t change the world. Inspired by the real lives of suffragettes, this is the story of a movement that divided the nation. Suffrajitsus used Jiu Jitsu to protect themselves from arrest and police brutality, and ultimately helped win the fight to give women the vote! Combining original music, puppetry and some graphic novel style ‘Ka-Pows!’, Suffrajitsu shows that you too can change the world, no matter who you are.

It can also be a means to achieving other goals: group cohesion or behavioural change. All our sessions are delivered by experienced, enhanced DBS/CRB-checked film makers, under the creative direction of Han Duijvendak and Jane Duckworth, who are experts at guiding a group in producing a film which surpasses expectations.
