Are you an Artist, Writer, Thinker, Creative, Performer, Theatre maker, Director?

Do you have a creative idea but haven’t had the chance to give it the time and attention it needs? Do you feel a bit stuck? Do you want to top up your creative toolkit? Do you want to spend some time with other creatives, connecting and thinking about your creative vision?

Then come and spend two days with Izzie and Dora.

For the first time ever artists Izzie Major and Dora Colquhoun are running a 2 day workshop sharing their theatre making practice. Associate artists of Hope Street Limited, Izzie and Dora are long term collaborators and the creators of sell-out musical extravaganza 'ADHD The Musical' 2023. Other projects include live action game 'Escape Fort Lagoon’ (2023) with 'Submersion Productions' & 'Wake the Beast', and their debut show together, absurdist surrealist comedy ‘The Flowerpot Women’ (2020). They are currently working on ‘The Lodger’, a new show about home and belonging. The Lodger is supported by ACE funding and currently on a work-in-progress tour of the North West.

During the 2 day workshop we will explore ways to devise and create material, encouraging participants to explore their own artist identity through play and creative exercises.
