Date: 1 July 2019, 10:00 — 5 July 2019, 17:00

This five-day summer school will explore theatre-making through acting and contemporary performance.

Students will engage in text based work, devising and movement to give them an introduction to cross-art form collaboration and an opportunity to explore new ways of working.

Students will work with experienced theatre makers to look at a variety of stimuli and contemporary play texts through acting techniques, devising and ensemble work.

By the end of this course, students will have

• explored the use of acting techniques in relation to existing contemporary text
• investigated characterisation through voice, movement and improvisation
• explored the use of persona in performance through self-generated text
• worked collaboratively with the group in creating an ensemble
• an understanding of devising forms, models and methodology
• a wider knowledge of contemporary plays and companies

Throughout the week students will work to create an original piece of performance for an informal sharing for family and friends on the last day of the course.
