WORKSHOPS

Our workshops and performance projects release creative expression via play. A performance that is based on play builds a direct relationship with the audience. When we play we are full of energy, alert and spontaneous. We look for playfulness in others and listen to creative impulses in ourselves. When playing we tend not to judge ourselves. If we are enjoying a game we are fully involved in it. There is a total belief and honesty.
Shifting Sands Theatre offer workshops suitable for professionals as well as a wide range of education or community groups, schools and colleges. Workshops can be selected as ‘stand alone’ training opportunities for a group or can be developed as part of a residency or devising project.Where possible workshops can culminate in the devising and performance of a show.
