#JMKSpace ‘Crongton Knights’: Collaborative Theatre Making

Creative Collaboration

Approaches to making 'Crongton Knights'

Oliver O'Shea

Following the #JMKSpace Post Show discussion on Crongton Knights, this session continues the conversation with Oliver O'Shea, Creative Associate of Pilot Theatre.

Oliver will explore Pilot's collaborative approach to making work for young people, and the role of dramaturgy in developing stage adaptations, by referring to examples from the creative process.

This #JMKSpace workshop is aimed at JMK National Programme members who saw the production of Crongton Knights, directed by Corey Campbell and Esther Richardson, co-produced with Belgrade Theatre, Derby Theatre and York Theatre Royal.

N.B. You need to have seen the production before participation in the event.

This event is open to all.  It takes the place of our directors' groups normally hosted by Northern Stage and Edinburgh Traverse.

The discussion will take place 4.00pm - 5.00pm on Friday 12th June on Zoom, and will be facilitated by Maria Crocker.
