This year we have some exciting CPD events planned... Join us online or in person for a broad range of devising approaches to take back to your students!
SATURDAY 1st JULY 2023, 09.30-13.00, Online – Zoom
£65.00 inc VAT
– Are your students excelling at devising material, and then coming unstuck when it comes to putting it together?
– Do they lean into naturalistic storylines because it’s easier for them to shape linear work?
– Do you want to feel equipped to guide them through their devising process from start to finish?
Brand new for 2023, we have re-devised our popular ‘Structuring Devised Performance’ Course especially to be delivered online. This CPD webinar is aimed at teachers and facilitators who are guiding students through a devising process, and aims to give a concise and considered approach on how to structure devised work, whether students are working in the style of The Paper Birds as their source practitioner, or working more broadly. The course focuses on approaches to layering, building and structuring scenes to create a final devised piece, and will equip teachers with the confidence and the method on how to encourage students to develop thought-provoking and relevant contemporary devised performance.
Places for the live webinar are limited – book early to avoid disappointment!
This live webinar will be filmed and released as a video download after the live event.
