Performance Workshops

Run Time Aug 15 - Sep 26
Price From FREE
Presented By BREC

Join South West artists Andrew Robinson and Vahri McKenzie for a series of free performance-making workshops at BREC!

This unique project combines professional performance-making workshops with creative development of a new play by Andrew Robinson, Love Death Taxes, a comedy-drama about family succession.

Running every Saturday for seven weeks from August 15th, the workshops are free and anyone is welcome. They cover acting for contemporary theatre; voice work for performance; script analysis and development; writing for performance; theatrical directing, and performance.

To get a feel for the project, a taster workshop will be held on Saturday August 15th at BREC, and if you choose to commit to the project, there are six workshops and a public showing. It’s ok to miss one workshop, but you’re discouraged from dropping in and out.

This is an opportunity to explore this new text with performers for the first time. The hope is that participants may be cast in a role from the play for the public showing.

There are twelve parts for people of all shapes, sizes, colours and genders. We welcome mature minors. If you are under 18, please contact us:
