Join us for the long weekend and create your own devised work! Working from just a few simple ideas and exercises the company will come together to make their own short piece of theatre. Led by two instructors, we will work on physical theatre, mime, vocal techniques, dialogue and monologues. This will be the best way to spend your days off, with a bunch of theatre nerds! All levels welcome.
