Drama and Dice


Course description:

Dungeons and Dragons is one of the most well-known tabletop role-playing games in popular media nowadays. It brings together theatrical themes like storytelling, theatre of the mind and improvisation within the framework of a game, reliant on dice. But how do you play a character? How do you run a game? How do you keep the different story threads together in the chaos of playing a game of make belief with friends?

In this course we will play around with these themes and learn the mechanics of the game, how to play your character and how to be the Game Master who runs it all. The roleplaying will be central here. 

So! If you want get comfortable with these themes in a different style and setting from your typical theatre settings, this is the course for you!

Chorus


Course desciption:

‘Chorus’ is a course for directors and actors who are interested in creating new musical theatre.

Do you enjoy rhythm, movement, song, poetry and drama? Are you interested to explore the musical aspects of making theatre? Do you want to experience creating musical theatre as a group?

In this practical course we are going to take the element of the ‘chorus’ and explore its forms and functions - from tragedy to flash mob. Along the way, we will develop skills in ensemble work and musical theatre.

You don’t need to be a singer to sing, nor be a dancer to dance, so there is no prior qualification you need to join ‘Chorus’.


About me:

When I was a child I was engaged as a singer in a West End show and discovered a vocation in music and theatre. As a London-based drummer through the 80s and 90s, my performing credits span the globe. Since 2001 I have been teaching Music and Theatre at schools in India and Africa. Throughout my career as an artist, thinker, director and teacher, I have developed original works combining art forms.
