Starting from Scratch

For Teachers/Teaching Artists/Facilitators

2 hours/half day/full day/3 day residency

Much of the theatre we make starts with a story or a script given to us by someone else. But what if we started from scratch? What if we could make theatre from our own ideas, our own perspective, our own stories? Founded on the core values of ownership, authorship and collaboration this session explores practical ways to support young people to develop their ideas and find their voice through performance.
