JMK Northampton Workshop – Well-being and Directing Trauma with Nikki Disney

Thursday 26th April
6 – 8pm
Royal & Derngate, Northampton

In this 2 hour workshop, we will be looking at trauma and how it impacts individuals and the collective. We will look at how these themes can impact on the rehearsal room and how to support actors who have both lived experiences of traumatic events or are embodying a character who has a traumatic response. We will also look at how these themes can impact on the cast/crew and audiences. There will be space for thinking about your own work in practice and developing critical thinking when designing safe spaces.

Nikki Disney is a dramatherapist, creative supervisor, yoga teacher and director specialising in working with vulnerable groups. She is currently investigating supporting the arts from a well-being perspective.
