This highly energetic and creative workshop allows teachers to become students again for the day, introducing Frantic Assembly's unique approach to creating physical material. The course is perfect for teachers working with young people, who wish to extend their knowledge and practice of devising and physical theatre techniques.

  • Learn new physical devising techniques using a socially distanced framework.
  • Explore how you can create work that conjures all of the qualities of touch, embrace and connection without compromising the advised social distance needed between performers.
  • Discover ways of creating choreography for groups of all abilities.
  • Build your own physical confidence, ability to take risks, develop your skills and transfer them to your classroom.
  • Experience the processes used to create Frantic Assembly's award-winning shows and find out how to develop key skills crucial to the performer/director relationship.
