What to expect from our devising workshops:

We get to know you through playing games and then create stimuli from shared stories or interests. As a group we then collaborate to create an original performance.

We are all artists, no theatre experience is necessary, just come with a readiness to collaborate with others.

A little bit of magic happens when we work together to create something, and have a space to express ourselves. Being part of the cast and being playful is good for your general well-being.

Balancing Act uses the devising process in creative theatre workshops.

Drawing on multiple creative practitioners, our practice is unique as it promotes artistic excellence whilst focusing on care. We use these techniques to explore participants' experiences and perspectives whilst, most importantly, having fun!

Upcoming events

The ability to pretend as ‘other’ offers multiple openings to try on identities and, perhaps, to shape our becoming in directions we might not have considered.

Monica Prendergast and Juliana Saxton, 2020

I liked the free exploration. It didn’t feel overly structured, but it made me feel liberated.

Previous participant

I like that it was multidimensional, with movement , dance, singing and storytelling. I liked the opportunity to be loud and big. The emphasis is on play and allowing ourselves to be silly. Basically I liked everything!
