empowering women through theatre

WOMEN! NEED MORE PLAY IN YOUR LIFE?

The first term may be taken separately for women wanting a playful theatrical exploration working on an individual piece of work to be shared in an intimate setting at the end of the nine weeks. It will be process rather than performance orientated.

During the second term we will deepen and build on the theatrical language we have already created, further develop individual work and monologues into a devised, ensemble production to be performed at the Byron Theatre.

In both terms we will be building confidence, opening ourselves to the physical, mental and spiritual dimensions of theatre and developing our expressive and creative skills.

It will also help you find more play in your life through theatre and open up new connections within ourselves and with others.

No prior theatre experience necessary!  

The second 9wk course will conclude with a live theatre Performance in The Byron Theatre on Wed eve 19th September!!!
