The masterclass programme is a series of 5 weekly workshops that explore different aspects of devising and generating work. The price stated below is the cost to take part in all 5 workshops.

1. Creating Movement Through Tasks - what they are and how and when to use them. How to get to a conclusion that surprises you and how to get there safely.

2. Text inspires Movement - Responding to the written word. Explore the relationship between the text and movement .and the creative response to stage directions.

3. Movement inspires Text - Collaborating With Writers and Creating The World. Rather than simply responding to the written word, we explore how physicality can inspire and precede the written word.

4. How can we find the right task? Creating and applying our own tasks to our creativity. Aiming for simplicity. Allowing the space to fail, to get distance and perspective on what we are trying to achieve

5. Workshopping an Idea - Testing and challenging the limitations, parameters, and possibilities of an idea. How and Why we do this.

This course is designed for participants aged 18 and over. Participants will be selected based on experience and suitability for this programme.
