Sixteenfeet offers a range of informative, participatory workshops based around our productions, which explore the theatre making process and look at the themes and background of the work we create.
For secondary school students who have a story to tell but may not quite know where to begin. The workshops, designed to be highly practical and interactive, will cover:
- storyline construction
- beginnings, middles and endings
- creating plausible characters
- clarity of ‘feeling’ each piece wishes to convey.
Scriptwriting through Improvisation
