The Performers' Playground Course
Reasons to dive in and train with us?
Play: You will encounter le jeu (the game of theatre), neutral mask, mask play, clown, bouffon (satire and grotesque parody), plus playful approaches to text and weekly devising tasks.You will be an essential part of a vibrant and creative ensemble. You will play, laugh, dance, explore and create together. It will be magical.
Imagine: You will study rhythm, colour, materials, elements, animals and more to feed and develop your artist's palette. We will approach character and creation from a place of pleasure, beauty and imagination rather than more traditional ways.
Create: The course is designed so that you are constantly experimenting, creating and refining. We will build and shape material as an ensemble and you will understand what it means to be a collaborative creator. In the final week we will perform a range of our new work at the course showcase.
Grow: We teach through game, exercise and playful provocation to consistently challenge each individual. As a result you will become bolder, more sensitive, resilient, impulsive and playful. In short you will grow.
Believe: You will develop the confidence to begin creating your own work. You will walk into auditions with renewed vigour and playfulness.
Laugh: Laughter fills our classes. Humour is so important to what we do. It is as important as the air we breathe. Without it we cannot truly flourish. In class you will develop a sense of humour about yourself and your work.
