Actors of Dionysus is a registered charity and theatre company; since 1993 we have toured new theatrical adaptations of ancient Greek drama and new writing inspired by classical mythology, and we deliver an Educational Programme of workshops, talks and performances to schools and colleges across the country.
This year we have received funding via The Big Give Christmas Challenge for our Antigone Educational Engagement Programme, which will enable us to deliver 20 free Classics and drama workshops to schools and colleges in inner and outer London where students would not normally have access to facilities and material like this to support their learning.
We are offering the following free workshops to Key Stage 4 and 5 students, using Antigone as a source text:
* General Classics workshops examining conventions of Greek staging
* From Text to Performance
* The Tragic Hero
* A Chorus of Approval
* A Drama oriented workshop looking at methods of devising and improvisation
Workshops will be hands on, inclusive, participatory and lots of fun!
Workshops may be tailor-made to suit the requirements of the venue to include the specific areas that you would like to cover. Workshops are free but we are asking for an optional £20.00 donation to help towards travel and admin costs.
”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”
