Workshops for students, emerging theatre makers and teachers!

WORKSHOPS FOR STUDENTS 

As a company that came up through the Bristol Old Vic Young Company, we feel we understand the importance of a theatre education. We've been running theatre workshops with young people since the company's inception and we pride ourselves in delivering high quality, accessible and thought provoking sessions that give participants a strong foundation for making their own work.

 

Our workshops focus on one or more of the following:

  • Tools for Devising & Ensemble techniques

  • Physical Theatre & Movement

  • Writing & Devising

  • A show by The Wardrobe Ensemble

  • A chosen stimulus 

 

We will tailor our sessions to suit your needs and ensure our workshop is as useful to you and your students as possible. We are also happy to run shorter & longer workshops on request.

All workshops include a teaching resource pack & recorded interviews with the company.

ONLINE CPD FOR DRAMA TEACHERS AND FACILITATORS

 

Devising in a socially distanced classroom

 

This 2 hour online workshop is aimed at Drama Teachers and Facilitators working with KS4/5 students in schools and educational settings.

This workshop will equip teachers with a series of devising tools and techniques to take back to the classroom and support their students in their own devised theatre-making. Through pre-recorded videos, presentations and interactive discussions, we will unpack some of the key exercises The Wardrobe Ensemble use to make its work. We will look at how to generate new material, develop discussions, create narrative structure and make visually exciting theatrical moments. Taken together, we hope to provide an informative, thoughtful and enriching theatre workshop that provides teachers with an insight into the company’s methodology, which they can incorporate into their own teaching. 

After this workshop you will:

  • Have a good understanding of The Wardrobe Ensemble’s devising process. 

  • Be able to lead five devising tasks with your students in a socially distanced classroom.

  • Develop your own devising language and best practice for running a room.

 

This workshop also includes:

  • A teaching resource pack, detailing each exercise discussed in the workshop and an outline of the company process.

  • Pre-recorded videos of our exercises and company interviews.
