A while ago I mentioned No Drama Theatre, an amateur theatre group. I've now tried out their Tuesday workshop twice, and enjoyed it both times.
The format was the same for both weeks: an initial warm-up with drama games, followed by structured improv. The focus of this week was to gain experience in the 'business' (physical actions) of using props. Rather than actually using props, this was done through mime - this isn't as odd or silly as it might sound. It was fun but also felt like genuinely good practice.
No Drama are currently preparing for their upcoming production of Wyrd Sisters in the Teachers' Club, Parnell Square, from 3rd - 6th November.
