MASTERCLASS: Blood of The Young Ensemble Mayhem

Join our company-in-residence Blood of the Young’s artistic director Paul Brotherston for a fun practical session offering a glimpse into the company’s active, ensemble-driven creative practice. The company create in a truly collaborative way, and this workshop will teach you a bit about the practical building blocks necessary to make work together.

Blood of the Young have been described as a ‘young company who have made an unusually vivid mark on the Scottish theatre scene’ (The Scotsman) and recently won great acclaim for their anarchic, all-female production of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow. Other shows include Daphne Oram’s Wonderful World of Sound, a show about the BBC Radiophonic workshop founder, Daphne Oram, featuring a live electronic sound score, Secret Show 1, an anarchic take on Shakespeare’s The Tempest, and gig-theatre collaboration Golden Arm Theatre Project.

Paul is also associate artist at the Tron Theatre, where he recently directed Bunny by Jack Thorne and a CATS award nominated production of Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape.

This is a workshop suitable for all theatre makers or actors, regardless of experience.
