The Ensemble Laboratory
2010-11 Host: The Actors Centre, Covent Garden | 2011-2012 Host: People At Play
Our Ensemble Lab provides time and space each weekend for up to 20 members a week to train, experiment and develop skills together as an ensemble. The ensemble produce low tech, low budget gig-style theatre in various spaces; from contemporary performance to classic plays. The first production is The Love of The Nightingale by Timberlake Wertenbaker. Unlike our main productions, this is an voluntary ensemble for those who wish to benefit from ongoing collaboration and workshop sessions therefore provide training and skills development free to all participants.
The aim is to nurture a mutual understanding and shared history of work together, developing a common language emphasising a balance between text, movement and musicality in performance. We regularly receive guest practitioners and directors to run sessions or workshops on various plays. We believe that cultivating mutual training and an ongoing dialogue between performers is essential to creating truly great ensemble theatre.
If you are interested in joining the Ensemble Laboratory please send us a statement of interest and your CV. We will get back to you as and when space becomes available in the future / when new auditions are happening. Contact details can be found here
