Monthly Drama Group for Adults

Tuesday, 9 January 2018 at 19:30–21:30

Hello! I wanted to let you know about Play: Stafford. We are a monthly Drama group for adults in Stafford, of all experience levels who are looking to get involved to get involved in Drama and theatre workshops in a relaxed and encouraging environment. Each workshop is led by a different group member each month on a different style or genre of theatre or a play or practitioner.
We are having our next event on Tuesday 9th January at the Bird in Hand in Stafford at 7.30pm
In a change to our usual Monday night slot, this one is happening the second Tuesday of the month. However, it will still be the same wonderfully welcoming two hours of exploring an exciting area of Drama and theatre. So, if you're over 18, living in Stafford (or the surrounding area) and want to spend a relaxed and enjoyable evening in the company of like-minded and friendly people, then come and get involved it would be great to see you.

It’s behind you! University of Kent celebrates panto past and present

Panto fans are in for a treat when the University of Kent’s Popular and Comic Performance research centre presents a day-long celebration of pantomime past and present.

The event, due to take place on 10 January 2018, will begin at 0930 at the University’s Templeman Library at its Canterbury campus with an opportunity to view historical pantomime material.

Those taking part will be able to see material held within the University’s Special Collections and Archives and enjoy a talk on pantomime history from Professor Jim Davis of the University of Warwick.

At lunchtime, participants will be invited to visit the Beaney House of Art and Knowledge in Canterbury to see a major exhibition of pantomime material. In the afternoon, the programme moves to the Marlowe Theatre, where there will be a talk on contemporary pantomime from Simon Sladen of the Victoria & Albert Museum, a panto quiz, a backstage tour, and a Q&A session with members of the cast and creative team behind this year’s Marlowe panto Peter Pan.

The event, which runs from 09.30-18.00, is free and open to all. Anyone booking tickets for this event will get a 15% discount on that evening's performance of Peter Pan at The Marlowe Theatre.

Meyerhold's Biomechanics Workshop with Stephen Hudson

Meyerhold's Biomechanics Workshop with Stephen Hudson

Saturday 13th January, 10am-4pm

Stephen is a director, actor and teacher working within conservatoire training. He currently works at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, and at East 15 Acting School. He also set up the Sussex based, award winning theatre company The Brighton Laboratory. He has trained extensively in Biomechanics under the Russian Master Gennadi Bogdanov, himself trained by Nikolai Kustov, who collaborated with Meyerhold on the development of Actor’s Biomechanics. Stephen teaches Biomechanics both as a way to develop the actor’s physical capabilities in relation to strength, flexibility and specificity, and the corresponding emotional and psychological responses to eternal stimuli, but also as a means to a greater understanding of a Stanislavskian approach to text and character.

Biomechanics, created by Russian director Vsevolod Meyerhold (1874-1940), is a rigorous physical training based on the premise that in order to be imaginatively free the actor must by physically free. It trains the actor’s physical dexterity, elasticity and responsiveness.

Meyerhold, a renowned actor and director with the Moscow Art Theatre, regarded movement, gesture, space and rhythm, as the primary elements of the ‘language of theatre.’ He dreamed of retheatricalizing the theatre, of creating a theatre that would give its audience truthful images of life but that wouldn’t seek to imitate or copy life, a theatre capable of revealing ‘inner dialogue by means of the music of plastic movement.’ Meyerhold’s work over three decades resulted in his system of Theatrical Biomechanics.

This workshop will be of interest to all Drama teachers, in particular those delivering A Level Drama, BTEC and Cambridge Technicals in Performing Arts.
