Teaching and Delivering Improvisation Techniques Workshop with Helen Halliday

Saturday 12th January, 10am-4pm

This improvisation workshop will focus on the teaching and delivering of techniques to stimulate creativity and inspire exploration of the process. Being a teacher in creative arts can exhaust your own creativity and this workshop is designed to give you fresh and exciting ideas at the point of delivery.
All creative art starts with an idea. We all have ideas ergo we all are creative beings. Some of us are lucky in that we have the time, space and capacity to expand an idea into a whole thing, whether that’s a picture, an object, a piece of music, a dance or a story. For some, the process is more challenging. With the increased demands of the new specifications it is even more important that students have the tools to devise/improvise quickly and effectively.
To play make believe, or role play as the dramaturgs call it, is to explore and experience. It gives students confidence and tools for communication and installs in them a sense of familiarity, preparing them to be an adult in a complicated world. It enables them to become proud creators of work, a feeling that will linger with them as they grow and mature, bolstering their future confidence in the world of employment. Improvising and devising has a far reaching effect on a student’s development.
Teaching young people to improvise is a challenge. It takes planning, creativity and in depth knowledge of the process. You must be a facilitator. A guide. You must try to remember how it feels to have your mind go blank or be out of control, to not have words to explain your feelings or to be able to express your wishes clearly. Because teaching improvisation is about understanding vulnerability and allowing that nakedness, that openness or emptiness to be the start of something.

LITERARY GREAT IN THE HOT SEAT

LITERARY GREAT IN THE HOT SEAT

Saturday 26th January 7pm

Literary great Michael Frayn will be in the hot seat in Winchester in January 2019, answering questions from John Miller on the playwright and author's remarkable career.

Best known as the author of the farce Noises Off and the dramas Copenhagen and Democracy. His novels, such as Towards the end of the Morning, Headlong and Spies have also been critical and commercial successes and his plays have won six Evening Standard and three Olivier Awards and Copenhagen also won the Prix Moliere in Paris and a Tony Award for Best Play on Broadway.

Michael Frayn is unusual in being equally successful as novelist and playwright, a distinction he shares with Anton Chekhov, which may explain his third writing gift of translating the latter’s plays from the Russian. His novel Skios was nominated on the long list for the Booker Prize, and his previous book Stage Directions is a collection of his essays about his theatre work over half a lifetime, including the introduction to his last play Afterlife at the National Theatre. It is also a reflection on his path into theatre: his early, ill-fated attempts at Cambridge Footlights, his subsequent scorn in his newspaper columns and, surprisingly late in life, his reluctant conversion to the stage.

“Since I have spent my life writing novels as well as plays, one of the questions which people always ask is how I decide whether a new idea is one for a play or for a novel. The answer is that I don’t. The matter decides itself. The idea that takes shape inside one’s head has its form written upon it; that’s what makes it an idea and not just a piece of wishful thinking,” says Michael.

“Michael talks as brilliantly as he writes”, says John “and I look forward to a fascinating discussion of his craft as playwright and novelist.”

The evening follows previous highly successful In Conversation evenings with Dame Judi Dench and Claire Tomalin as fundraisers for the family support charity Home-Start Winchester. “John Miller has an amazing address book,” says Home-Start Winchester Chairman Liz Cooper “and we are so grateful for his supporting us in this way.”

The event at Winchester Guildhall at 7pm on Saturday 26th January, will be followed by a book signing by Winchester booksellers P & G Wells and tickets at £12 are available by calling 01962 851177 or email info@home-startwinchester.org.uk or online at michaelfraynwinchester.eventbrite.co.uk (plus a booking fee).

As well as acting you’ll learn about careers in production and technical theatre and if that’s a route you want to explore we can broker learning and work experience with our partners. We’ll support your progression to a technical theatre course or into work and having an understanding of the acting process will stand you in good stead.
You’ll receive 24 hours a week of contact time over 38 weeks a year for 2 years. The weekly timetable is structured over 4 days leaving a day for independent study and assignments.

You'll need to be on track to get at least five GCSEs grades A*- C or a BTEC Level 2 Diploma (at merit or distinction). In exceptional cases we can take students who don’t have GCSE English or Maths at grade C or above and we can provide tuition in those qualifications alongside the course. Though experience of dance, drama or expressive arts subjects are advantageous in giving you a sense of what’s involved, we are more interested in raw talent and welcome your application even if you have had little or no experience.
