This 12-week course will cover foundations in theatre making practice. Each term will be led by a new artist who will share their craft and support you to develop your own toolkit of theatre making skills. 

The focus of each term will vary but across the year you will have the opportunity to explore acting, directing, movement and facilitation. 

These workshops will look at creating work for today’s society through writing, directing and devising, using stimuli such as music, newspapers, tweets, or messages. How can we make work that heals, responds, protests about this messed up world?   

Please note that you can either sign up for Citz Writers Term 3 or Citz Theatre Makers Term 3, but won’t be able to take part in both.
