The Process of Devising Theatre

Workshops schedule - two sessions  Session 1 09 | 07 | 2021 (Friday) 6:30pm – 9:30pm  Session 2 10 | 07 | 2021 (Saturday) 10am – 5pm *Please note that participants must be able to attend both workshop dates. In devised theatre, members of a theatre team collaborate creatively to produce original works. The process can be a great source of inspiration in educational settings – providing teachers with new techniques to create theatre works at school and offer students new possibilities for artistic self-expression. If you’re curious about using devised theatre at your school, find out more this July at The Process of Devising Theatre, a two-day workshop* presented by theatre educator and performance artist Neil Harris. Drawing on creative techniques used by some of the best devised theatre companies around the world, Neil shares tips on the devising process from stimulus and warm-ups, to development and performance, and explores techniques for finding inspiration using the body, space and images.

Jockey Club “Project Silver” Intergenerational Arts Project 2021: Rubber Stamp Portraits – Teacher workshop

Traditional Chinese carved seals combine the characters of a person’s name with visual symbols representing their personality or position in society to create a unique stamp of identity – a bit like a signature. Today, artists have adapted the art of seal carving to create hand-carved rubber stamps as a means of artistic expression. This September, as part of the Jockey Club “Project Silver” Intergenerational Arts Project, we are launching a new education programme that encourages secondary students to create hand-carved rubber stamp portraits and reconnect with older family members at the same time. Completed student artworks will be collected during the project and featured in a public exhibition in October and November 2021. If you are a secondary school teacher and would like to invite your students to take part in this project, join us at our teacher workshop and learn the fundamental techniques of rubber stamp carving and how to help your students create rubber stamp portraits inspired by their elderly relatives. The workshop is free of charge and conducted in Cantonese. Places are limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please complete the online registration form (in Chinese only) by 5 July 2021.
