Approaching R&D (with Iskandar اسكندر bin Sharazuddin)
What is an R&D?
A cornerstone of the theatre-making process?
An excuse for aimless play around a theme?
The words research & development?
This workshop explores different methods of approach to R&D and what it means to nurture a creative space conducive to play and spontaneity, but which also acknowledges the importance of outcomes, after all, what are you going to tell the Arts Council?
We’ll come together to play games, write some stuff down, and spend some time in our bodies. Exploring a range of text-based and physical approaches to working, we will unpack, uncover, and understand what an R&D is and how it can help you whether you’re making your own work or someone else’s.
This workshop is for anyone interested in R&D, creatives & actors alike. However, it will include some physical work so please wear clothing you can move in.
Friday 12th November
Time: 10am – 4pm
Where: Wildcard Studios, 18 Balderton Street, W1K 6TG
