Tickets no longer available.

Join Chalk Line Theatre in a physical devising workshop exploring how to bring to life bold political work. 

Creating material from scratch can be a daunting task, particularly with the absence of text. This workshop explores different methods of generating ideas through the use of simple exercises and utilising extracts from Chalk Line's award-winning play, The Nobodies, to stimulate your own story. It will also delve into developing an initial idea into something more tangible by providing tools in relation to creating complex characters and intricate scenes. 

Perfect for young people 15-18yrs old (School Years 10-13). This workshop explores creative practice and devising work in an ensemble.

Workshop participants will get a discounted ticket to the evening performance(s) of The Nobodies.

 Chalk Line’s work is both thematically and visually ambitious, receiving great critical acclaim on their approach to contemporary theatre-making. As a company they look to experiment with form, by tackling socio-political subject matters in an innovative way that is ultimately challenging yet entertaining. 
Chalk Line’s work is often the result of lots of research and development and periods of devising with playfulness at the heart of the company's approach. Their shows combine physical expression, ensemble narratives and intricately bold designs, and are often multi-disciplinary drawing from theatre, film, music and dance.
