Devising, Stagecraft, and Confidence
9.30am - 5.00pm
22nd of September
Whether or not you are devising to create a production, or simply experimenting with some ideas, the process of devising is invaluable in helping individuals and groups to understand and explore deeper levels of their own skills and abilities. To create stories and characters and understand the interactions that make them both come alive allows the performer to connect with the true essence of theatre.
In this workshop, we look beyond the notion of performing in a play and examine the creative process and how we can engage with it on a deeper level.
The workshop includes uses of stagecraft in order to bring possible ideas to life and how these techniques can help with personal confidence.
