This Devising Techniques Physical Theatre Course is a space to learn devising methodologies to make new experimental theatre.

Stimulate, Research, create, devise. Make the theatre of the future.

Each week you will be working on a devising theme with your classmates, understanding structure of composition, dramaturgical devising and collaborative process of making.You will be asked to create a space of creative encounter and opportunity, and we will challenge you to find artistic autonomy and to be critical about your practice.

The results of your work will be shared as a final performance in front of an invited audience and you will receive feedback from the Teacher to improve your work.

Course media




We facilitate the creation and development of a shared language, negotiating the tension between collective and individual decisions. Each creative process is unique, therefore we tailor exercises to each group to strengthen communication and cooperation processes.


Our goal is for participants to independently devise narrative structures and find new storytelling methods. We interweave content and form, by exploring the arc of a story, the driving forces, stakes, characters and archetypes, and by creating a physical language that unifies the story.


We propose an enquiry project where participants undertake theoretical and practical research to create new work. Participants will be invited to think critically about how other practices inform their own. This provides an opportunity to generate an interdisciplinary dialogue between mediums and approaches.


Challenge yourself to recognise what works and what can be improved. Question one another and exchange knowledge. We will prepare you to understand your group dynamics and recognise the right times to give feedback, and how to do so constructively.


On the final day of the Devising Techniques Course you will have the opportunity to invite a selected audience: family, friends, agent to a final performance sharing where you will be presenting the work you made.
