”It was impressive how much information and practical work was covered in a two hour workshop. The students were able to produce exciting and thought-provoking performance work in a very short space of time”
Paul Webster, Performing Arts and Drama Subject Advisor, Edexcel.
aod offers a comprehensive outreach programme of workshops, introductory talks and post show discussions including a host of educational publications, dvds and audio-CDs
Our workshops are very practical in nature and give students the opportunity to improvise around and work with text. They can be designed to meet specific requirements, in particular exam and syllabus related. The emphasis is on exploration and identification of key characteristics of Ancient Greek Drama in an informative, hands on and engaging environment. Workshops can focus on particular areas, for example the nature of chorus both from an ancient and contemporary viewpoint. Physical, vocal and choral exercises provide students with the technical tools to play with and inform the text.
'Total engagement of all pupils. A truly excellent workshop' 10/10 – Gary Baxendale, Ryburn Valley High School.
