JMK Yorkshire – Leeds Playhouse

We're thrilled to run a Directors' Group for emerging directors and theatre-makers in partnership with Leeds Playhouse (formerly West Yorkshire Playhouse). Participants have access to free JMK workshops, residencies and networking events, as well as the opportunity to apply for Assistant Director bursaries.

This group is run by our JMK Director Practitioner, Liz Stevenson. Liz also runs our Directors' Group at HOME Manchester, developing a community of directors across the North East/West.

Recent Workshops:

Working with Text:

How do you approach text as a director? How might your work on the text inform the pre-production process? How can a director prepare the text ready for working with actors? How might you structure your research? Ever wondered how to use objectives and actions? Not used to having the text as the launchpad for your work, but want to know where to start?

This day-long workshop exploring different ways to approach text will be led by our JMK Director Practitioner and freelance theatre director Liz Stevenson (Theatre by the Lake, Royal Exchange, Young Vic).
This workshops is especially aimed at directors, but anyone who has an interest in working with text is welcome to attend.

Date: Tuesday 4 December, 10.30am

Venue: Other Space (2nd Floor, 7 Eastgate, Leeds, LS2 7LR)
