Artist Development

We run a range of professional development opportunities throughout the year for performers, choreographers and theatre-makers, ranging from one-day masterclasses to week-long residencies and intensives. We try to keep these as varied as possible for artists at different stages of their careers. Our intensives are run by highly experienced members of our devising ensemble, as well as Artistic Director Amit Lahav.

To see what opportunities we currently have on offer, please go to our Opportunities page.

I learnt so many new techniques, and really surprised myself with how far I went, and how much it made me feel.
