Hello! Autumn and winter are soon upon us. We’ve got some interesting workshops coming up and for starters we’ve got John Wright in the middle of September. Hope to see you there!

Best wishes from the Living Pictures Workshop Team – Tom O’Brien, Neil Bull and Robbie Bowman

John Wright: Writing with a Stupid Face

Dates: 16th & 17th September | Times: 10:30-5.00pm | Place: London | Who For: Directors, Actors and Creators | Cost: £175
(£25 off if you have taken part in a Living Pictures Workshop)

Writing with a ‘stupid face’ is a workshop on devising. Devising is a process of collaborative writing based on complicity, play and mutual provocation.

This workshop is about using masks in devising – not to make masked theatre – but to inspire complicity, play and mutual provocation to enable you to develop ideas.

This is an entirely practical workshop and no previous experience of mask-work is required just a keen imagination and a taste for generating ideas.

John Wright is an internationally renowned teacher and director. He has taught workshops all over the world and his book ” Why is that so funny?” is a must buy for actors, directors, students and teachers. John was a founder member of the acclaimed theatre companies, Trestle and Told by an Idiot.
His version of Dr. Faustus with IIIParty won the Peter Brook Award and Coal Theatres Fragility of X won a spirit of the fringe award at the Edinburgh festival.
He is currently working on a new book provisionally titled “Acting without the bullshit.”

Please send us your CV and a short paragraph detailing your professional interest in the particular workshop.
NB: Previous LP Workshop participants need only send a paragraph stating why they’d like to take part.
Some places are available for actors on each workshop, but please note that priority will be given to directors.
Workshop places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
Each workshop will show what discounts are available.
We ask that a deposit be paid to secure the place on each workshop, with the balance to be paid before its commencement. Participants on multiple workshops are therefore able to stagger payments as necessary.
