Subject Activity Strand Content

Devised Performance: Body, Voice and Imagination

Using the body, voice and imagination as a starting point for unlimited creative potential, this workshop will provide participants with a sustained creative experience, through a series of devising games and collaborative tasks. We will explore visual storytelling techniques, ensemble work and improvisation, space dynamics, object work, voice, and original sound-scapes. The sessions will be rigorous but fun! The workshop will hopefully provide participants with a positive taster experience of a practical Drama module, as well as the skills and knowledge to embark on their own devised projects for the future. There will be a short sharing of performance work at the end of the residency.  

No prior experience in Drama required!
