Engine Room Roadtrip: How to Steal Art (and Get Away With It)

Engine Room in partnership with CABN, A Heart for Duns, Unit Four The Cornucopia Rooms and Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre.

Join director and playwright Eve Nicol for a hands on workshop exploring her practice and approaches to both writing and directing. This workshop will look at borrowing, remixing and riffing off existing works to create new stories. Eve will also share her experiences working across-art-forms, from adapting a Belle and Sebastian album into a piece of theatre, to directing The Drift, the first piece of theatre by spoken word artist Hannah Lavery.

Our Engine Room programme has our Theatre Without Walls ethos at its heart. We bring artists together to develop skills, networks and create new work at the greatest reach of their imaginations and ambitions.

From July to September, Engine Room will focus on resilience, acknowledging our roots, and the things that keep us grounded and centred, as part of Engine Room: Grounding
