All Drama and Street Theatre Workshops can be tailor-made to suit your requirements but these are the most popular choices:
Drama Workshop: 2hrs - all ages
With a strong focus on group dynamics and developing trust, participants will explore characterisation through group games, improvisation, mime, role-play and hats. There will be an opportunity to display work at the end.
Play-In-A-Day Workshop: 1 day - all ages
More in-depth than the Taster Workshop, including developing story-telling and tableau skills, and using props. You may have a theme in mind or it could be decided by the group. Participants will work towards performing a play at the end of the day.
Anti-Bullying Workshop using Forum Theatre: 1 day - 10yrs+
Using techniques from Boal's Theatre of the Oppressed and Image Theatre, there will be a strong emphasis on building trust and learning assertiveness techniques to change outcomes. Using improvisation, mask work, sensory games and tableau. A short piece of Forum Theatre will be produced.
Street Theatre Project: 6 days - 10yrs+
To build strengths, relationships and teamwork skills to create a physical performance. Using group games, improvisation, mask work, mime, physical theatre, slapstick, stage combat and tableau. Learning how to draw an audience on the street and developing performance techniques. To devise several sketches or one big show, to be performed on the Saturday in a local town centre.
Theatre In Education Project: A weekly after school workshop for 6 weeks, followed by 5 days during half-term, plus performances - 10yrs+
Participants will explore issues affecting their lives to create and produce a piece of Theatre In Education, to be toured to their peers at other local schools and youth centres/projects. I have a wealth of knowledge, resources and skills in many issues affecting the lives of children and young people including alcohol, bullying, child protection, citizenship, crime, diversity, domestic violence, drugs, gender, healthy lifestyles, homelessness, Internet safety, mental health, relationships, sexuality, transition from primary to secondary school and unemployment.
I'm also able to film a Workshop and edit and produce a DVD. This could be used as evaluative evidence and multiple copies could be produced to distribute to all participants, so that they can show it to their family and friends, and get credit where it's due. Or perhaps you are already planning a project with children and/or young people and you'd like someone to film it. I could work with the young participants, using drama and creative thinking, to devise and film a DVD highlighting the project that they will be working on.
Drama Workshops require a large space, preferably an indoor gymnasium or hall. Classrooms are okay as long as all the chairs and tables have been moved and there's adequate floor space for the number of participants. Drama Workshops could be outside, though it's not good in wet weather.
Please get in touch as soon as possible, so that I can provide you with a quote for your organisation. I'll need your name and contact details, the address where you'd like the Workshop to be held, start and finish times and approx number of participants. I look forward to hearing to hearing from you soon.
