Free Youth event but limited places so book early
A full day of practical drama workshops where aspiring actors can unlock their creativity and confidence while they learn vital skills in making theatre!
In the morning we will focus on improvisation — making things up in the moment, learning to say no to the doubts that get in our way and yes to the creative opportunity. The workshop will include lots of quick fire, fun exercises and lots of laughter.
In the afternoon we will focus on the physical skills needed to tell stories and create characters — using music for inspiration we will explore ways of creating settings, atmospheres and narrative through movement and gesture.
The workshop will be facilitated by Sarah Osborne an experienced and inspirational drama practitioner, director and writer who has been working within theatre, training and education (both mainstream and outside of school) for over 21 years. In addition to her freelance work she is artistic director of Yew Tree Arts Ltd and Yew Tree Youth Theatre. Her work in the arts focuses on creating quality theatre and encompasses a vast range of productions of established plays in addition to the devising, writing and direction of innovative new works many of which are ensemble based. At the heart of all of her productions is the search for truth, integrity and creative vision. In her work within education and training she uses drama to develop creativity, confidence and communication all essential elements in successful learning. Her education work is driven by the same ambition of excellence and opportunities for all as her work in theatre.
