Free Training Opportunity for Birmingham Practitioners in Non-Verbal Physical Theatre

Open Theatre are thrilled to invite Birmingham-based Artists & Practitioners to attend two half-days of free training around nonverbal physical theatre practice on Saturday 16th and Saturday 23rd February.

We are expanding our pool of practitioners who work in special schools and in our youth theatre programmes, and we will be launching a longer-term paid training programme after Easter. The training days will include opportunities to ask more about the programme, and to give a taste of our practice and ways of working.

This session is open to anyone, at any point of their practitioner journey – whether you’re an experienced practitioner with a pre-existing practice, or an artist just beginning to think about running workshops. You might be interested in working with Open Theatre in the future, making your practice more accessible, or just curious to try something different.

The sessions will be led by Richard Hayhow and Melissa Daly, as well as members of BecauseWeCanCanCan, a company for emerging neurodivergent artists. We will be running two sessions of three hours on:

Saturday 16th and

Saturday 23rd February

From 2 – 5pm

You are welcome to attend either session, or both. The training will be held at mac birmingham, Cannon Hill Park, Queen’s Ride, Birmingham B12 9QH. mac is an accessible venue. mac is a 3-minute walk from the 45, 47, 1 and 35 bus routes. (Paid) Parking is available on site. Attached are photographs of the entrance, and a map showing its location.
