Theatre Performance

Claire Wall

Claire is a performer, writer and theatre maker. She trained as an actor and is passionate about using theatre as a platform for community storytelling. Her Honours production was a site- specific, devised piece that explored perceptions of place and belonging. She enjoys experimenting with movement, sound, comedy, and interesting landscapes.

Derick Yearnsmith

Derick has been making theatre for 10 years in various roles as performer, director, and sometimes writer. In small productions he also enjoys making sets and props. Mostly working in site specific and non-confrontational spaces, he loves making narrative based contemporary theatre and movement based performance. His work is informed by a mix of disciplines that cross art forms and cultures.

Dive into the process of making a theatre performance from scratch! Join Claire and Derick as they guide you through a series of creative processes to construct a devised theatre piece. We’ll be looking at a few ways to approach making theatre as an ensemble, utilising a range of techniques to build a short performance by the end of the week. This will be a great introduction or booster to devising theatre.
