About the event

These workshops always enable us to benefit from some key tools in Theatre Devising, such as ideation, movement, improvisation, group games, performance making and creative writing… You get to connect with fellow creatives through group warm-ups and games, getting inspired in an encouraging environment balanced with collaborative energy with chances to work on your own materials.

It is refreshing to go through key steps of the devising process. And what is amazing about our workshop is that it can be taken for practice and learning for either of these aspects, beneficial to theatre folks and creatives in other areas alike.

Suitable for:

  • Theatre-makers, performers, movers, creatives, OR those interested in learning about theatre
  • You may be from another creative background such as filmmaking, performing arts, advertising, writing…

**Features to expect for the May edition:

  • More explorations and tools in movement and physical theatre, opening possibilities for physical expression
  • Devising and writing, including playing with Haiku (the Japanese poetic form)
  • Inspirations originating from different cultural backgrounds, while talents coming together from across the UK and from internationally

In the 1.5 hour, we will fuse the unique talents and collective creativity of the group, with members meeting at the virtual space from across the UK & internationally. Like always in our monthly online Devising workshops, it is such a connected and supported space with ease of participants logging in from the comfort of their own space, surrounded by relaxing and lively collaborative energy signature of the approaches of Alice.

This workshop will be led by Alice Higginson-Clarke: a theatre-maker, performer & writer who has been a Co-Artistic Director of Scratchworks Theatre Company since it began in 2013. With 10 years' award-winning track record of highly visual and playful theatre, Scratchworks is a physical ensemble of three women blending movement, comedy, live music and imagination to bring a story to life.

Alice is highly recommended by the partcipants for her excellence in facilitating a relaxing, resourceful and fun group environment where everyone feels supported to explore, create and learn.

We have previously welcomed creatives of all walks and they have found the sessions and practice inspiring and helpful, as well as a great opportunity to make connections in a collaborative group environment.


I loved the way you led us to deep dive into the activities by explaining details in clear instructions. Also, I loved the atmosphere among all of us. It was like we were meeting face-to-face. -- Regular Participant

The workshops always begin with a small thing or word but the outcome is enormous. They provide a chance to think outside the box. Participants are supported to be creative. -- Sooyoung, artist and performing arts teacher

I think the workshop encourages one to tap into the unknown imagination and think of our bodies. Great source of inspiration to create things towards certain new feelings, thoughts, and connections. – Sabrina, filmmaker

I was a little nervous when I first joined but then relaxed and felt happy to participate. – Liu, acting student

For this session you will need a piece of paper & pen. A private space and clothes suitable for moving are also recommended.

If you have any questions about this workshop, please reach out and we'd love to chat or help you.
