Workshop: Claiming your space – empowering female directors, 11 Jan

Orange Tree Theatre
11th January, 1 – 4pm

A workshop for female-identifying participants led by Akiya Henry and Martina Laird.

This practical workshop, working with both emerging and established female directors who wish to explore or further develop their sense of authority, will explore the dynamic of the rehearsal space: the relationship between actors and directors, communicating and developing a vision, and creating an individual voice.

Akiya and Martina are developing a programme of work, of which this is a pilot, to empower female directors to challenge the imbalance of representation in the industry. These workshops will offer the opportunity of a safe space to cultivate strength through differences and personal truths.

Places are limited on this workshop due to its practical focus and so to apply to take part please send a couple of sentences (in any format - written, recorded or filmed) about why you would like to be involved and send them to jo@jmktrust.org by 9am on Wednesday 8th January.
