Making Performance

The Making Performance workshop shares CLOD ENSEMBLE’s distinctive interdisciplinary approach to devising performance for students in key stages 4 and 5. Making Performance has also been delivered at Higher Education institutions.

Director Suzy Willson trained with legendary theatre and movement teacher Jacques Lecoq in Paris. This training has had a profound impact on the way Suzy creates and edits material, sourcing movement qualities from music, nature and visual art. The workshop will reveal methods for creating performance using music as a stimulus and will also explore what impact music has on what we see on stage. The workshop will be led by an associate artist of the company.

The workshop is suitable for any Performing Arts students in Key Stages 4 and 5 – Drama, Dance, Music – and has been created specifically tailored for students enrolled on:

A Level Drama and Theatre Studies – both Edexcel and AQA syllabuses – with focus on the devising component.
BTEC Level 3 Performing Arts – with focus on Units 26 (physical theatre techniques), 22 (movement in performance) and 21 (improvisation).

“I am sitting to the side of the workshop now and observing delight and curiosity all around… CLOD ENSEMBLE has sparked some sparks at Sussex!”
Dr Arabella Stanger, Lecturer in Drama at University of Sussex

“The workshop really inspired me and left me with lots of ideas. It was clear, concise and fun!”
