The London Devised Theatre Intensive is a new two-week workshop for theatre makers to share and expand their practice of devising theatre. With a mix of masterclasses, peer practice exchange, creating performance, and professional development, the Intensive aims to inspire theatre makers, raise the profile of devised theatre, and foster international connections.
Five masterclasses will be taught by guest artists including Bryony Kimmings, Kristine Landon-Smith (L’Ecole Philippe Gaulier; Tamasha Theatre), Tom Mansfield (Upstart Theatre), Nir Paldi (Theatre Ad Infinitum), and Lee Simpson (co-artistic director of Improbable).
The Intensive is created by Amy Clare Tasker Performance Lab (artistic director Amy Clare Tasker, executive director Susie Italiano), in partnership with Blue Panther Productions (executive producer Laura Lundy).
Nir Paldi says: “I am delighted to be joining this great team of practitioners teaching on this course. I’m hopeful we’d be giving participants a rich, inspiring and fulfilling experience that will energise their practice for years to come.”
Tom Mansfield says: “I’m particularly interested in how we can bring together devised theatre with digital technology and how we can bring the audience into the process of making theatre.”
Kristine Landon-Smith says: “This is a wonderful workshop programme giving a range of artists the opportunity to explore and express their concerns, their personalities, their ideas.”
Lee Simpson says: “I love devising theatre because you get to play with all the theatrical toys straightaway. It’s like using a very complicated piece of equipment without reading the instructions first.”
