Brighton Secondary School in partnership with the National Institute of Dramatic Arts is pleased to offer this seminar inviting participants to experience all elements of a professionally mentored and devised piece of relevant theatre.

 

The Urban Theatre program at BSS sees NIDA’s Head of Writing for Performance, Stephen Sewell, mentoring a young writer in the development of a stage play for performance. Now in its second year, the Urban Theatre program has had a focus on building outstanding learning outcomes in critical thinking, creativity, collaboration with learner voice at the centre of the process.

 

Seminar participants will hear from the cast, the director/teachers, the mentored playwright and Stephen Sewell, providing a thorough discussion of all elements of the devising process. Included is a showing of the performance by year 10 students at Brighton followed by a Q & A with Stephen.
