Shakespeare: From Page to Stage
This can be an introduction to Shakespeare for key stage 2 or year 7 pupils, bringing Shakespeare to life and giving students confidence, a feeling of ownership over the language and most importantly, a deep enjoyment of Shakespeare’s plays!
Writing & Poetry workshops
Flexible, creative and inclusive workshops including:
Poetry workshops (writing, structuring, shaping, editing and performing)
Playwriting workshops (devising, dialogue, characterization, storytelling, structure)
Writing on a theme (for drop down days, theme days/weeks etc)
Stand-alone workshops for key stages 2 and 3, including:
Poetry and Number: a fun workshop exploring number meanings using personification, metaphor and exploring imagery and abstraction.
Where I’m From: Poetry of place and culture- especially good for cultural diversity days, and with students struggling with confidence and voice.
A huge range of skills-based workshops, including:
Approaches to script
Practitioners (Stanislavski, Brecht, Artaud, Brook)
Genre and Theatre History (Adapted for Level 2 BTEC or AS Theatre Studies)
I can offer longer-term projects as an artist in residence. This work will be student-centred (with students taking on specific roles throughout the project), collaborative, creative work with a distinct end goal (eg the creation of a radio soap opera)
As an artist in residence I could work on any number of projects, depending on need and time.
