Book your place here: 3-Day Masterclass with David Glass

Amadan Ensemble is hosting a masterclass by David Glass, as part of this year’s inaugural Theatre Works Fest NI. This masterclass focuses on developing the skills and tools required for making your own creative work for individuals and groups.

Devised theatre sits at the heart of modern theatre practice, where the actor/performer as collaborative maker is central. David Glass is one of the world's pioneers in this expanding area and has influenced the work of many, including Complicite, Gecko Theatre, DV8, and O Theatre.

Based on David Glass’s Alchemy of the Extraordinary Creative Practice, this masterclass is a must for any performer or company wishing to develop their own work. The course is rigorous, playful and practical, and over three days, participants will learn the fundamentals of Devised Theatre and will come away with tools and skills they can use immediately in creating work.

Key areas will be:

  • Ensemble and group creative practice
  • Emerging material
  • Analysis of material-ideas, image, dramatic situations, character, expressive mediums
  • The arc of choosing material: Interesting, Resonant, Relevant and Appropriate.
  • The Creative triangle tension of Artist, Art and The World
  • Theatre being Evocation, Provocation and Invocation
  • The organic relationship of Story, Drama, Design and Music/Sound.

Appropriate for beginners and professionals, teachers and students. Please bring loose-fitting clothes for moving comfortably around, and an open heart and mind.

Supported by Belfast City Council and the MAC

Please note: Your ticket is for the full 3-day masterclass.
