RTYDS New Directions South West April 2022
Opportunity for directors and theatre makers in the South West
RTYDS provides training for under-represented directors and theatre makers at all stages of their careers. We developed New Directions to create hubs in individual areas around England - to move resources away from London and establish self-sustaining networks in local areas.
What will New Directions South West involve? You’ll take part in a curated series of workshops where you’ll expand your skills, do some thinking around your practice, and have the chance to chat to the Artistic Directors of the partner theatre companies.
First, we’ll all meet online on Friday 8th & Saturday 9th April to find out more about each other and take part in some facilitated sessions around making theatre. Then, we’ll meet in-person on Saturday 23rd April, where you can chat to each of the organisations and take part in practical workshops.
Applications should be made to your closest partner organisation.

Dance Master Workshop Programme 2021/22
Workshops, gatherings, talks & classes
Supported by Hall for Cornwall
Curated & produced by Emily Alden
The Dance Master Workshop Programme has been running since 2019, supported by Hall for Cornwall and delivered by one of our associate artists, dancer and choreographer, Emily Alden.
With 12 workshops running across 12 months, the programme invites experienced/professionals working within dance to join local, national and internationally working artists to technically and creatively be inspired, upskill and connect to others.
As a result of current Covid circumstances, this year’s programme will operate differently, being delivered online. Each session will creatively consider what ‘dancing together’ looks like as we all juggle different personal situations, families, work pressures, and the blurring of physical spaces between work and home. The dance programme will reflect the current realities and practicalities we are all experiencing, while celebrating the joy, adaptive nature and skillful way dance has continued throughout the Pandemic.
There will be an opportunity to join an informal Q&A with artists after most workshops. Age restrictions: Over 18yrs Please see each individual event for further booking details. Cost to join varies from £3 - £10, including Pay What You Can for most sessions.
