PLAYING SAFE

Facilitated by Victor Craven

Saturday 22nd June from 10.00 to 2.00


The rehearsal space should be a place of safety where all participants feel free to express their ideas.

In this workshop, actors and directors will share the studio space to experiment and play with ideas whilst rehearsing text based scenes.

Group feedback to both actors and directors will be encouraged by all, with an emphasis on all ideas being valid, and that nothing suggested can be considered wrong. The aim is to create an environment where the very nature of rehearsing a scene can be explored and for participants to learn from each other by having the freedom to try anything that comes to mind.

This workshop is designed for directors and actors, but is also open to designers or anyone who is interested in theatre.
