Physical Theatre and Devising Workshop. Creating Performance is a 3 day workshop offering children aged 12 – 16 years the opportunity to devise, rehearse and perform a play under the guidance of our experienced Drama Facilitators.
Throughout 3 days the group will create a play from the theme of “Twisted Fairytales”. They will make new friends, develop characters, discuss and devise scenes to build their play for a performance on the final afternoon to family and friends. This process is designed to develop creative thinking, drama and improvisation skills and build confidence and teamwork.
Students can let their imagination run wild, creating a different interpretation on the Fairy-tale classics. They could chose to go down the darker world of Grimm and explore the actual stories where toes and feet are sometimes lost or they could rewrite a new ending to the plethora of stories from childhood. There is no limit to what can be achieved in this short time; who knows what strange and wonderful characters they’ll create and what worlds they’ll transport their audience to.
Not only will they received guidance and help from our Facilitators but they will be given props, costumes and basic scenery in which to create the world of their play.
It will be 3 days of building fun memories, learn new skills and making new friends.
Due to limited spaces available, it is recommended that parents/guardians book early to avoid disappointment.
All children will need to bring is their willingness to get stuck in, their imagination, comfy clothing and plenty of food and drink to keep their energy levels up.
