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
