Wellbeing in Making Theatre: Deepening practice for D/deaf and disabled directors / theatre makers
Starting on Wednesday 29 July 2020 for eight weeks 11.00am- 1.00pm
Where: Zoom virtual meetings
Ramps on the Moon and RTYDS are working in partnership to provide D/deaf and disabled directors and theatre makers with the opportunity to expand their craft and networks.
Director Rachel Bagshaw will be leading a series of six sessions over Zoom drawing on her expertise both as a director and coach and inviting other artists to share their craft and knowledge.
The sessions will explore:
- Wellbeing specifically for D/deaf and disabled artists
- Wellbeing within the rehearsal room. Exploring wellbeing practice as part of making work and how it can enable more creative freedom for the whole team.
- How Rachel’s process has developed to embrace the wellbeing of everyone in the room, and use some practical examples of how she works.
- Craft of making theatre from the perspective of the director
The sessions will start from Wednesday 29 July and run weekly for eight weeks (with a one-week break in August)
19 August – No session
The sessions will take place on Zoom and will be live captioned with BSL interpretation provided. We will ensure that access provision is in place for all participants. We encourage participants to attend all of the six sessions so that we can build a group dynamic and participants can get to know each other and provide an ongoing network of support.
There will be activities for beyond this project provided by both Ramps on the Moon and RTYDS.
This is an opportunity for D/deaf and disabled directors and theatre makers from across England.
