Summer School 2016

In August 2016 we're running a one week summer school for students aged 12-18 years of age.

Students will receive professional standard actor training designed to hone your acting ability through classical and contemporary acting styles.

You will also receive specialist masterclasses to build your core skills in Singing, Dance, Stage Combat and working with Shakespeare, plus you'll see a West End show and get experience-based career advice!

Devising Physical Theatre:

Over the past 10 years, Theatre Workout has developed an extensive programme of physical theatre training inspired by the teachings and practices of practitioners including Jacques Lecoq, Artaud and Grotowski, and by contemporary companies like Frantic Assembly, Complicite, Derevo and Cheek By Jowl.

This has led to the development of physical theatre training workshops in partnership with Disney's The Lion King, The Lord of the Rings - The Musical, and with West End plays including the 39 Steps, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, and the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time.

This one day workshop will explore a range of physical storytelling and devising non-verbal physical theatre techniques to tell new stories and the creation of original performance.

Date: Tuesday 25th October, 10.00-17.00

Stage Combat:

Stage Combat, like all good theatre, is about storytelling. It tells the story of characters at their most emotional, cruel, raw, vindictive, aggressive and passionate state of mind.

This one day workshop will explore a vast range of unarmed combat techniques including punches, slaps, grabs, pulls and throws to enable you to stage stunning fight scenes which are 100% safe!

Led by a professional fight director and assisted by highly experienced practitioners, you will learn an extensive physical vocabulary of moves, which will be placed into improvised scenarios for performance.

Date: Wednesday 26th October 10.00-17.00
