Antonin Artaud Workshop

Antonin Artaud theatre Practitioner Workshop 

Think of Artaud as the man who established the ‘theatre of cruelty’,  This workshop always leaves the participants with a lot to consider, sparking a love for a very alternative approach to theatre.  6thform and college students have described this Artaud workshop as extremely practical and a breath of fresh air.
Participants will explore a more unconventional form of theatre and experience a sense of freedom from the ritual of unadventurous, naturalistic performance.  Ideally created for AS-level and A-Level Drama, Theatre or Performing Arts students. However, this workshop has also been tailored as an introduction for year 10 (post14) classes.

  • A-level students will be encouraged to devise their own Artaudian themed piece from a given stimulus.
  • Participants will be forced to challenge traditional approaches to set and lighting.
  • Students will confidently experiment with alienation techniques, and other elements of Autaud’s theatre of cruelty.
  • A-level students will gauge an understanding of how Artaudian techniques are present in 21st century theatre and how others have been influenced.
  • Post 14 participants will have a basic knowledge and understand the broad concept of Artuad’s theatre whilst experimenting with some of the techniques.

This workshop plays a key role in helping students approach their coursework and gives them the confidence to analyse and utilise Artaud’s methods in their devising from stimulus.

THIS WORKSHOP IS  AVAILABLE ALL YEAR ROUND –  PLEASE CLICK TO BOOK OR FOR MORE INFORMATION
