Drama workshop - Words, words, words

This hands-on drama workshop uses performance, creative writing, multimedia and visual art to explore the theme of communication. The workshop aims to encourage those taking part to develop their confidence in communicating their feelings to others, whilst also teaching news skills in performance, craft and multimedia too.

Structured in different stages, the drama workshop will include everything from poetry and performance, to visual art and multimedia. The elements of the workshop will then be combined to create a contemporary performance.

Suited to many different people, whether studying for GCSEs or A Levels, or perhaps teacher training instead, drama workshops are the ideal opportunity to not only be creative, but to perform too.

  3. Create a visual language- ‘vocabulary of movement' exercise, where a visual language will be created using given words, before communicating with each other using the abstract language.
