Sunday 27th January – 11am to 5pm.
Displaced: Birmingham Today
Using this as our theme for this course, we will create new pieces of Theatre. Taking as our inspiration the work of Bertolt Brecht and Sanford Meisner,these Workshops we will explore the effect of Alienation in Brecht and how using Meisner helps Actors fire the lines of a play. From out of all this we will create a play for and about Birmingham...
NTI Showcase Night Saturday, 2nd February 7.30pm £5
The NTI (New Theatre Initiative) Scheme is a new series of workshops for actors, writers and directors run by Frank Bramwell of inamoment, in association with the Old Joint Stock Theatre, aimed at stimulating the creation of new theatre in Birmingham.
Each five-session run of workshops, a mix of study and collaboration, will culminate in a showcase night of full performances of the newly created works at the OJST, and from the best of these Workshop performances it is hoped full-scale production runs will emerge.
In each Workshop there will be opportunities for everyone to learn new ways of approaching their particular Theatre craft, and to then use those skills to jointly create direct Theatre. Whether people are relatively inexperienced or not, the team ethos of these Workshops encourages everyone to participate to the best of their ability.
The last NTI cycle looked at Meisner techniques and was focued around creating pieces about the Birmingham Riots of 2011, after a highly successful showcase night several of the short plays were performed in the pop up shop window as part of the Three Week Window Festival.
Feedback from people who have been on previous NTI Workshops:
CM Just to say a big thank you for a great four weeks it's been quite a journey!! I've learnt so much from you. You've truly inspired me to do some more writing, thanks for reigniting this flame. Please let me know when you are running workshops again as I would love to work with you again. Loved the whole organic process.
PA The format of the workshops has been different to anything I have done before but a really positive experience. Thank you!
SC I think the performance went really well and I just want to thank you for an excellent experience. It was both educational and enjoyable!
