Event description

Saturday, 22 June 2024 / 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective’s PERFORMER’S ARENA is a series of day-long physical theatre workshops for anyone looking for a compelling way to escape from the stress of daily life, gain new perspectives and experience our ground-breaking approach to transforming intriguing social issues into beautiful poetic stories on the stage.

Develop your body awareness, self-expression, voice, self-confidence, stage dynamics, social connections and acting skills in a unique creative experience. You will be invited into the D.I.V.E. Collective’s training room and will join our ensemble in the same warm-ups, activities and creative routines we follow to prepare for our shows. You will be introduced to a series of physical exercises and group dynamics focused on strengthening your precision, balance, coordination and discipline. No experience is required.

In a relaxed and friendly environment, you will be guided to explore your body's full capacity through movement, synchronisation, gesture, proximity, repetition and presence. You will learn how to use your physicality as the main medium for storytelling in your daily routine and on the stage. This workshop will enable you to gain confidence, challenge yourself and get acquainted with your body through theatre experiences that will help you improve soft skills such as leadership, communication, collaboration, problem-solving and adaptability.

The training encompasses an in-depth approach to several methodologies and techniques used by D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective, including Meyerhold’s Biomechanics, Theatre of the Oppressed, Devising, Immersive Theatre and Composition.

The Performer’s Arenaworkshop series is divided into two day-long training blocks during the year and is aimed at participants aged 18+. You are welcome to join at the start of any training block.
