BUST holds a workshop EVERY WEDNESDAY from 7:00 - 9:00pm for our society members.
They are run by other members and are usually on a theatre topic they are well-versed in or based on a theatre/social experience they have had. They can range from improvisation to script work, directing to set-design.
We also allocate a portion of our yearly budget to bringing in professionals to put on workshops on some more complex/in depth topics.
Everyone will have the opportunity to run a workshop if they would so like, so please contact our Vice-Chair David (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested!
Let’s have a look at some of our favourite workshops!
Recent Graduate Chris has put on some incredible workshops over the years on the many aspects of stage combat. Built on the knowledge of the various courses he has attended over the years; it covers everything from how to stage fall to full on swordfights!
Frankie took us to the wonderful world of puppeteering where she showed us how to make impromptu puppets from an item of clothing, which we then would go on to perform a short piece with for everyone else based on an emotion that we we’re trying to convey. After the performance, the audience had to try and guess and we would see how poorly we did!
Jacob ran a hilarious workshop on improvisation and comedic timing. We played some classic improv games, putting characters in ridiculous situations and learnt how to successfully improvise a scene that is fun for both the actors and the audiences.
Chiara showed us everything that goes into set design and how we can design the stage for our favourite shows!
Every year we have 2 workshops run by industry professionals. We’ve had great experiences and learned a lot every time.
