Complicite, Amy Gwilliam, and Gary Thorne (UCA)


Sasha Milavic Davies, from the world-famous Complicite Theatre Company. Sasha will conduct a workshop exploring Complicite's innovative methods which have seen the company perform in over 40 countries worldwide, win more than 50 awards and be described as ‘...the most influential and consistently interesting theatre company working in Britain.’ The Times.

Amy Gwilliam is an acclaimed writer and performer.  She will be performing 'Mummy or the Art of saying Goodbye', her critically lauded one-woman show, a "brilliantly conceived, directed and performed piece of tragi-comic, food-for-thought theatre".

Gary Thorne, formerly of RADA and now teaching at The University of the Creative Arts, has published three books on Stage Design, Designing Stage Costumes and Technical Drawing for the Stage. He was RADA's Head of Theatre Design between 2004 - 2016. He will lead our ever-popular set design workshop where participants will be able to create their own model sets.  

All speakers will take questions from your students.
