5 day Devised Theatre & Story Intensive

Are you a performer, director or theatre maker looking to create work? Do you want to work with one of the leading names in devised and physical theatre, an artist who has been making groundbreaking work for decades and continues to be at the forefront of devised theatre here and internationally?

Devised theatre now sits at the heart of modern theatre practice. Here the actor as collaborative maker is central. The participants will explore the tools of eliciting, image-making, emergence, story structure and theme, to develop skills in the creation of original and authentic theatre. This is a must for any performer wishing to develop their own work. Over the five days, the participants will learn the fundamentals of Devised Theatre and will come away with tools and skills they can use immediately in creating work.

David is an international teacher and multi award winning theatre maker and his ex students include some of the top names in theatre and performance including Simon McBurney, Emma Thompson, Amit Lahav, Tom Morris and many more.

“David is one of the great teachers and artists of our time who has never been afraid to examine truth in all its manifestations; both beautiful and ugly, and has touched thousands of souls in a life-long quest to connect and build meaningful relationships.” –  Amit Lahav, Artistic Director of Gecko
