Playing with Choice- Creating Interactive Theatre

 

This practical workshop explores how we create interactive theatre that

gives audiences genuine choice and agency.

 

Using different exercises we’ll cover:

 

-How to ease an audience into interaction and inspire them to play.

-How to create choices that have real consequences

-Creating ‘rich' interaction not ‘poor' interaction

-How to respond to different audience dynamics

(including how to deal with audiences who try and ‘break the game’)

 

The workshop culminates in everyone creating their own short interactive pieces.

Reducing Our Impact- Creating Sustainable Theatre

 

An introductory workshop for producing and creating sustainable theatre; giving you tools / new ways of working

 

We are passionate believers that creating work with a smaller carbon footprint does not have to limit your creative ambition.

This workshop will allow us all to explore what it is to put environmentalism at the heart of your practice and look forward, to what changes we can make to the creative sector.

 

Available both online and in person..

Runtime: 2 hours

We also run bespoke workshops/consultancy for theatre companies tailored to your needs, drop us an email to find out more.

Adapting For Online- Creating Digital Theatre

This practical workshop explores how to create digital theatre and view the constraints of the digital medium as a creative springboard rather than as a lesser art form compared to in-person theatre. Now that in-person theatre has returned,, what can we keep from what we have learned about making theatre digitally, what can digital theatre give us moving forward?

 

Using different exercises we’ll cover:

-Creating digital pieces via phones, video chat and audio recordings.

-How to keep and direct an audience’s attention when not in the same physical space

-How to use the audience’s own home/ location as part of your artistic ‘set' - even when apart.

 

The workshop culminates in everyone creating their own short digital pieces.

 

Available online only. 

Runtime: 2.5 hours.

 "This was a brilliant session for our BA Drama students which helped to raise their confidence in making work for digital audiences. The session was lively and enthused, but also meticulously planned, covering the audience journey, access and technical issues, and top tips for interactive and online performance.

All undergraduate makers facing an online landscape would benefit from this talk"
