Achieve greater, clearer and stronger presence and versatility on stage

-  a masterclass in Physical & Devised Theatre by David Glass

This 4-day workshop will give participants unique access to the Five stages of creative practice method developed by renowned director and teacher David Glass.

The five stages gives the participant a practical approach to physical and devised theatre, and gives the artist concrete tools to achieve a stronger presence on stage.

The workshop trains through five modes: Tools, Skills, Attitudes, Behaviour and Quality of Person. 

David Glass is an extraordinary teacher. He uses 'integrative learning' circles to help students include what they already know into new ways of seeing, experiencing and reflecting. He see's learning not as an 'outcome' but part of a holistic process that grows throughout a creative life.
