Trestle Physical Theatre Workshops

‘[the students] have taken on a more professional work ethic as a result of the workshop and are working their socks off!’  – Queensbury School, Bradford

‘…it has certainly raised [the students] level of input in their examined lessons’  – Acland Burghley School, London

Trestle’s adventures in physical theatre have given rise to an expanding range of workshops. Discover different routes into physical theatre by exploring the techniques Trestle uses in devising its touring shows. Students and participants will gain practical tools and innovative ideas to create and devise dynamic visual storytelling theatre.

Part One (Basic)
In this introductory workshop participants will develop an awareness of physicality and space through accessible and engaging exercises.

Part Two (Intermediate)

Building upon the skills learnt in Part One,  participants will explore new ways of creating physical and visual theatre for performance, as well as establishing a more focused and disciplined approach.

Each of the above workshops usually run for a minimum of two hours but can be scheduled to fit in with your timetable. Participants are typically 11 years and older but please contact us to discuss provision for younger groups. The recommended number of participants per workshop is 24, unless stated otherwise.
