Whenever we can we try and have workshops with new directors or others who can help to stretch our existing skills and develop new ones. These are usually in the summer in between our performance projects, but are sometimes specifically to help us launch a new project.
In June we had a workshop led by Valentina Rosati looking at The Absurd Theatre and what that means. As you can see it was a virtual workshop as we were still in lockdown, and that did present a few challenges, but overall it was a great experience and an opportunity to try new things – including Zoom!
In June we also had a workshop led by Laura Barritt on Improvisation, including some great warm-up exercises which were Zoomable!
