All paid for workshops are eligible for Pay What You Want. As everyone’s circumstances are different, we’re aiming to make our programme of work more accessible. There is a minimum price that we can offer and one that is slightly higher, for those who can afford to pay a little extra to help support the work that we do.

With the current cost of living crisis, we are more aware than ever of the need to ensure that BUILD remains accessible. With that in mind, we are offering a few free places for BUILD events. To request a free place, visit the main BUILD page at www.tron.co.uk/creative/build/ and complete the short online form.

Please note that while we will try to accommodate as many requests as possible, these places are limited.

Designed for actors, and using Churchill’s plays, this is an opportunity to think about ways of staging and wrestling with non-naturalistic drama.

with Gavin Glover

Led by experienced theatre practitioner Gavin Glover, this hands-on workshop will introduce some very useful puppetry techniques that can be adopted by performers for use in mainstream theatre. By channelling our own sense of play we will learn how to manipulate a variety of puppets by encouraging them to walk, run and jump without falling over and discover how puppets can apparently have feelings, reactions and even a sense of humour!

At the end of the session the participants will be able to see the potential for enriching their own creative practice by incorporating puppetry into their work and should feel more confident to audition for performance roles that require puppetry skills.

No puppet experience necessary. Suitable for any performer, director or designer.

Offered in partnership with Spotlight.
