Jacob Woods

I am an artist who specialises in devised theatre, site responsive performance making and workshop facilitation. I am Co-Artistic Director of the performance and research groups Go Happen and The Rest of Winter.

I trained at Falmouth University/Dartington College of Arts in Contemporary Performance and was then as an associate artist at Open School East in 2017. I am now studying an MA in Drama Writing at the Bristol Old Vic. Alongside this I have been training in theatre of the oppressed and acting technique through Michael Chekhov Europe.

I have previously been an associate artist on productions at the Old Vic Tunnels, Mayfest and In Between Time. And have led the devising of contemporary performances such as Ubuntu Spirit for Contacting the World Festival, WachTurm taking place on a former watchtower of the Berlin Wall and PACE a performance night run exploring the imagination and the dark.

Recently I have co-organised educational residencies and festivals with the ASHA Centre and AntiUniversity Now and have taught performance at the School of Creative Arts.
