Tangle (www.tangleinternational.com) and Prime Theatre (www.primetheatre.co.uk) are offering an exciting paid opportunity for professional theatre makers at any career stage to take part in training to deliver workshops based on Tangle’s upcoming touring production, Ben Jonson’s VOLPONE. Delivered by the expert team at Prime Theatre, and part of the AMPLIFY arts development scheme, training will focus on devising education workshops for Key Stages, 2 3 and 4, based around Jonson, Renaissance theatre and ‘breaking the language barrier.’



Participants will receive a fee of £150 inclusive to attend for the two training days or £90 + the administration of a DBS check if a DBS is not already in place.



Training takes place on Monday 9 and Monday 16 September 2019 from 11am –6pm at Yinka Shonibare’s Guest Projects in Hackney, London E8.


Participants must also commit to delivering a further workshop in Swindon between 23 September – 11 October 2019 for up to one day. A fee of £80 plus travel will be paid for this work.


After this training there may be further possibilities to deliver workshops as part of Tangle’s Discovery Programme across South West England, or as part of Prime Theatre’s programme in Swindon, during 2020.
