Trans Acting Workshop

3 Apr
Rehearsal Room 1

This workshop is for young people (age 13-25) who identify as trans and/or non-binary and are interested in taking an acting master class.

No experience of acting is required, and if you do have experience, you are welcome too. You might want to use some techniques used in the workshop to build your confidence for giving presentations or you might already know that you want to pursue training or a career as a performer.

The workshop will include some warm-up exercises that you would experience in a rehearsal room or in a Drama School setting. You will warm up your body, your mind and your voice. The session will include some work in pairs, concentrating on listening and responding to a partner. We work to create a safe and gender-inclusive environment in our workshops.

People who've been part of these workshops before, tell us that being able to do drama and acting techniques in a trans and/ or non-binary inclusive space is a great experience.

The workshop leader will be Barry Fitzgerald who is part of the GI TransActing project team and the Outbox project team. He also teaches at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

The workshop is a collaboration between Gendered Intelligence, Outbox Theatre Company and the Bristol Old Vic.
