Education

Theatrical Education is at the core of Wildcard’s work; we believe that high quality theatrical training and education should be accessible to everyone, at every stage of life. We approach our workshops with the same methods & practices that we use when creating our professional work, broken down into simple and digestible sessions which encourage creativity and provide practical skills that can be taken forward to improve the participants confidence and help them to understand how to unleash their creativity.

Listed below are our general Educational offerings, with details on how to make a booking. We also work with Schools, Colleges, Youth Companies and Higher Education or Adult Learning Institutions to design bespoke courses that suit your students/participants needs. If you would like to discuss a project, please email our Education Coordinator, Tom Crowhurst on tom@wildcardtheatre.co.uk.

CREATING WORK WITH PASSION

Higher Education

Passion is often what drives creativity. It is a powerful thing, and if artists can harness your passion into a disciplined approach, it can fuel the creation of excellent work, with very little time and resource.

In this module, Wildcard will unpick its approach to creating work from source material that the participants are passionate about, looking at a variety of styles, forms and techniques.

Through a bespoke number of sessions, our practitioners will guide the participants through the journey of turning an idea that ignites passion into an original piece of theatre. Click the image to find out more.
