Bryony Kimmings: Autobiographical Theatre Workshop Opportunity

  • Are you about to make a new piece of work and feeling stuck?
  • Are you desperately looking for inspiration?
  • Are you wondering why your degree never taught you to actually make things?!
  • Or are you keen to go back to the roots of your artistic passion after a break?
  • Then this is the week for you!

Join us for a week-long, pain free, brilliantly intensive course focused on autobiographical theatre making, self care and artist development.

‘I learnt more about making my own work and discovering myself as an artist during one week with Bryony than during my entire three-year Theatre degree.’ – Workshop participant

A carefully selected group of people will delve deep in this week of love, action, performance theory, creation and conversation with Bryony Kimmings. This is a very positive and cleansing week of activating, overhauling and creating new ideas. Kimmings offers a full run-down of her process detailing how to create watertight and interesting concepts, avoid creative blocks and self-doubt and preparing you with the a range of creative tools right when you need them.

Suitable for theatre makers, dancers, performance artists, cabaret stars, circus bods: anyone who wants to move into telling their own stories or needs a refresh!

You don’t need to come with a ready made idea; you will spend the week coming up with umpteen new shows, titles, narrative arcs, and loads of material. The week ends with an informal and uplifting sharing session with one another and signposting to the next real life steps for your excellent new projects.

Quotes from past students 

“Kimmings is a brilliant artist but she also has a fantastic knack for sharing her skills. If there are any magnificent ideas lying around in the sub-strata, this week-long series of kinetic exercises and mental expeditions will root them out.”

“The week of workshops was fantastic and helpful beyond anything I could have expected. Bryony gave us practical tactics to combat writers’ and creative blocks of all kinds, whilst being so generous and supportive of our individual passions and needs. And music and dancing!”

“The ideas you leave with are a million times bigger and more actionable than anything you dreamed of at the start of the week.”
