Workshop: Creating Characters Through Play

with Laura Trenerry

Dive into the world of Characters in an intensive two-day workshop with experienced comedienne and clown, Laura Trenerry.

Through a series of games, exercises and improvisations, you will:

  • create and explore new characters
  • generate new material
  • develop ideas
  • play with costume
  • explore ways to find fun and freedom on stage and
  • develop tools for continued practice

Combining clowning exercises with improvisation and costume, you will create multi-faceted, complex and beautiful characters with the potential to exist in a variety of scenes and scenarios.

This is an opportunity to ‘get out of your head’ and focus on impulse, following your own pleasure and the physicality of playing in character!

This workshop is open to all ages from 14+ and is suitable for all levels of experience and ability.

  • Capacity Limited to 16 people per two-day workshop
