Event details

Join Selma Dimitrijevic, a writer, director and dramaturg in this short workshop.

During the workshop we will look at the idea of 'playing from optimism', liveness in performance and connection with the audience. Working with a contemporary text, we will introduce and try a series of exercises and games that allow actors to be alive to what is happening on and off stage.

This workshop is open to Theatre Students of all years BA + MA
