Massive Company | TEACHERS WORKSHOP – Tuesday 21 November 9.30am-3.30pm


Massive Company Professional Development for Teachers working with young people. You don’t need to have attended previous workshops. As long as you are keen to experience through doing and think Massive Company might offer you something you could share with your students and ‘feed’ yourself as a theatre practitioner, then please sign up.

Sam will always offer a progression of whatever you might have experienced in a previous Teachers workshop. The workshops will always have a different devising/making focus from previous workshops in your region. We may re-endorse some of the key fundamental skills and techniques that Massive Company places at the heart of their work, but it will always be with a fresh approach and application.
