Devising a Show
Let's make some theatre together!
We run longer term devising projects with young people and emerging theatre-makers to develop a new piece of theatre.
Led by two company members, we will begin the project by running a series of training workshops to develop participant’s devising skills and to form a new collaborative ensemble. As a group, we'll discuss what we're excited by and what we want to talk about to establish a line of enquiry to base our new show on. We'll then start to generate a wealth of new material that follows our collective interests until a show begins to emerge. We'll then enter rehearsals to turn our new show into a full production that we can be proud of.
After this project participants will:
Have a strong understanding of The Wardrobe Ensemble’s devising process.
Have challenged themselves creatively and developed their skillset in all aspects of devising.
Have worked collaboratively with their peers to make a new piece of theatre.
We have run projects like this at Rose Bruford College, The North Wall Arts Lab, Bristol Old Vic Theatre and the National Theatre.
We will develop an appropriate timescale that works for you. This may be a series of workshops over a few months or an intensive residency over 4 - 6 weeks.
