The award-winning Natural Theatre Company bring their 10-week Performance & Theatre Skills Course to Bristol.
This is an opportunity for anyone over the age of 18 to learn theatre and performance skills in a relaxing and fun environment. The evening classes begin on Wednesday 1st May and run weekly until Wednesday 3rd July, at the Hen & Chicken in Southville.
The Natural Theatre Company create interactive comedy performances that take place in unconventional spaces all around the world. In 2018 they launched their Adult Theatre School, with two weekly classes held at their HQ in Bath. The popularity of the classes (having seen a take-up of nearly 70 students in their first year) has prompted the Naturals to create a Bristol branch of the Theatre School.
The classes – which are suitable for participants of all abilities – offer an alternative to traditional performance techniques: students will be taught the Naturals’ trademark style of comedy acting, including improvisation skills, physical performance and street theatre. They will get the chance to wear costume from the company’s extensive collection and learn about classic theatre pieces from their 50-year history as a performance company.
“Amazing fun! A great theatre training foundation, great to meet new people and be allowed to just be me.” Adult Theatre School participant, Luke John Emmett
The evening classes are designed for anyone with an enthusiasm for performance, whether they would like to build self-confidence, have an interest in acting professionally, or just want to start a new hobby and meet new people. Elle Roberts, Company Manager of the Natural Theatre Company, says:
“We started the Adult Theatre School with the aim of giving grown-ups a chance to have fun and de-stress after work in a supportive environment. We believe that having fun is just as important for adults as it is for children!”
The classes, which are taught by the Naturals’ professional actors, will run every Wednesday night from 7pm – 9pm.
Cost: £95 for the 10 week term
Location: The Hen & Chicken (Greville Room), 210 North St, Bristol BS3 1JF
