Saturday 24th June, 11am – 1.30pm
New Vic Theatre, Stoke
We would like to invite you to come together at New Vic Theatre on the 24th June, for a workshop dedicated to sustainable theatre practice, in association with Katie Mitchell’s HEADLONG production of A Play for the Living In A Time for Extinction which is being staged and directed by Eleanor Taylor at the New Vic Theatre as part of it’s innovative, sustainable UK tour. Eleanor will be running this workshop on what sustainable theatre practice really means, and how directors can begin to stage productions in a more sustainable way, followed by a Q&A. Whatever stage of your directing career, you’re welcome to join this exciting new workshop.
OPTIONAL *Please prepare a short directing pitch to share with the group. Taking a play you would love to direct, how could you adapt your approach to staging this play so it was more sustainable in practice? What is the most sustainable version of your show?
