Theatre Workout offers Lion King workshops

Date Posted: 21/03/2014

Based on physical theatre techniques inspired by Balinese Dance, Jacques Lecoq, Artaud and Grotowski, Theatre Workout's new Lion King workshops have been developed in collaboration with the shows resident creative team and are licensed by Disney Theatrical Productions.

There are three workshops available for ages 7 to 11, 12 to 15 and 16 plus and can be further tailored to the ability and interests of each school group taking part.

Summaries of the workshops are as follows:

Workshop one: Key Stage 2: The workshop will focus on the central themes of family, friendship, death, coming of age and conflict.

Workshop two: Key Stages 3 and 4: This workshop explores several techniques which teach students to develop their own physical characters from the show.

Workshop three: Key Stages 4 and 5: A physical theatre master-class for experienced drama and dance students. Workshop three teaches performers some of the techniques used in the show.
