Tour booking workshop
Megan attended a fantastic tour booking workshop at the Albany Theatre in early October, run by the fantastic Mark Makin - The day long workshop focussed on all aspects of tour booking, and Megan looks forward to putting what she learnt in to practice soon. We highly recommend this workshop! For more info and to book, visit the Independent Theatre Council’s website.
Megan attended the Metamorphosis festival in early October, hosted by the Architecture Foundation - Taking place at the beautiful Old Royal Naval College and Queen’s House in Greenwich, this day long festival featured an array of lectures and performances around the theme of classical currents in contemporary culture. The festival fantastically celebrated the legacy of the ancient Greeks and Romans by connecting it with innovative work being created today, and Blake Morrision’s lecture which featured performances from his versions of Lysistrata and Antigone was of particular brilliance.

Atlantic Big Wall Vertical Dance
Tamsin had an amazing time in Lisbon at the end of October, participating on the Atlantic Big Wall Vertical Dance. Some great wall play was had in the sun (and the rain, including hailstones for good measure!) and we can’t wait to get back in to the studio to work with what we’ve learnt, applying it to Medea.
