For performers, theatre makers, playwrights and composers – at any level of experience – with an interest in building a tool kit for devising theatre and finding their voice in a collaborative process
Presented by The Scenic Route with: Tangled Feet (Award-winning, inspirational ensemble theatre… More), Jason Carr(Jason is an award-winning composer and orchestrator who has composed incidental music for over 40 plays at the RNT, RSC, West End and Broadway…More) And more (news of an exciting playwright on board coming shortly…)
In their words: “As part of our platform to provide accessible opportunities to nurture new talent, The Scenic Route presents an intensive practical workshop exploring how to create original theatre collaboratively from scratch.
Through a series of masterclasses, practical exercises and rehearsals the group will investigate a range of techniques involved in devising a cross-disciplinary piece which brings together physical theatre, text and music.
The lab will culminate in a sharing of the work to an invited audience.
This is a rare opportunity to benefit from the combined expertise of respected practitioners, whilst practically applying their shared experience in a working ensemble.
Participants will take away a wealth of resources to build upon in future work, along with increased skill, confidence and understanding working in this form, plus connections with other artists.
The lab is open to both experienced and new artists alike, at any life stage, whether coming from a performance perspective, composition / musical direction, or playwriting.(There is no requirement for all participants to perform).”
