Workshops

I run a range of workshops in acting, poetry, animation projection mapping, and theatre making for all ages and abilities, from children and absolute beginners all the way through to university and professional level participants. I also offer one to one training.

Projection/Animation

Introduction to Project Mapping

Are you interested in using video projection in your theatre, art or events but don't know where to start? Or do you have some experience but want more hands-on techniques? Join Edalia Day as they walk you through their process from idea through to creation and performance as seen in their shows. You will get the low down on the software & hardware options available and advice on how to achieve your projection ambitions.


Live Digital Puppetry

 

Come and have go and try your hand at a fun, interactive drama workshop bringing digital puppets to life! 

We'll explore ways of improvising with animation, using graphics tablets and video game controllers to puppeteer animated characters that are projected on walls and screens around the room. Then draw your own characters and perform alongside them in a new piece of theatre of your own making.


Animation taster session 

Dive into the world of animation. In this hands-on workshop you will get to use your own mobile phones/tablets to create simple animations using the free app Flipaclip (iOS/Android). Come along and discover the endless possibilities.

Poetry

Exploring identity through poetry

A safe space to explore what it means exist in a world where you don’t fit neatly into other people’s boxes. Join Edalia in this kickass writing workshop interrogating language and labels. Using a range of creative exercises as starting points, you will write your own poems exploring the influences that have shaped who we are.

Sci-fi poetry and art 

An art and poetry making workshop for people of all ages and backgrounds. Using sci-fi, robots, aliens and space travel we’ll explore neurodiversity, disability, gender and the idea of being an outsider.

Find your voice 

New to performing your poetry or just looking to fine tune your skills? Then this is the workshop for you! Together with Edalia you will look at your approach to performing your poetry, touching on voice work, stage presence and how to form a connection with an audience in a playful way.

Theatre performance

Devising intensive (one week)

A week long exploration into Edalia’s unique way of making theatre. You can expect to get an insight into how Edalia combines poetry, projection mapping, music and their Lecoq training to make their own aesthetic for the stage. Through working together as ensemble, you will make a short piece over the course of the week in a playful and supportive environment.

Lecoq Masterclass (one day)

In this one-day masterclass, you'll create bold and ridiculous, yet truthful characters and explore physical theatre techniques using the fundamentals of the Lecoq style. Whether you’re looking to learn new techniques for theatre making or simply want to develop as performer - this workshop will provide you with a toolbox of performance skills and new ways of working.
