HOME are working with the JMK Trust to offer early career directors free access to workshop and development opportunities as well as a chance to meet regularly with a group of peers to network and share ideas.
Join Gecko Theatre Company for a workshop on 5 October, 10- 1pm.
In this workshop, we will look at tools to aid artists, theatre makers and practitioners in their devising journeys. You will have an opportunity to experience Gecko’s unique style of movement and physical theatre as well as an opportunity to gain an insight into the creative processes Gecko’s devising performers use when creating a show. We will explore how to devise from a stimulus and how to layer and develop movement and ideas. You will delve into the use of breath and language to express, and open doors to accessing emotion through physicality.

The Trust was founded in memory of director James Menzies-Kitchin, and each year, the JMK Trust provides talented young and emerging theatre directors with awards, guidance and development opportunities.
The JMK Trust has also awarded a number of regional assistant director bursaries, funded by The Leverhulme Trust, enabling one member of each of their directors’ groups per year to assist on a production at their local venue.
Previous bursary recipients assisted on Javaad Alipoor & HOME’s production of Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran in 2019, Rash Dash and Unlimited’s 2018 production of Future Bodies and Paul Auster’s City of Glass HOME Lyric Hammersmith 59 Productions in 2017.
