SCHOOLS & UNIVERSITIES

E.A.T Company holds a firm belief in the transformative nature of theatre. We are committed to our mission to "Collaborate, communicate, educate and inspire." 

To uphold this we have developed a programme to take into schools and universities, to allow access to the professional level of training available with E.A.T Company, and share our values that theatre is a community, a safe space of expression and creativity. Through working with children, young people and adults since 2014, we have developed 3 modules to offer to schools and universities across the South West.

These three, two hour, modules can be booked individually, or you can choose a combination of the three. The ultimate option being a full day. Six hours of work on the actor's mind, body and voice.

Our sister company Elvin Acting also offer a wide range of tuition for all ages and abilities. See www.elvinacting.com for more information on how you can attain excellence in your performance training.

Mental Health Module

2 hours

This two hour session focuses on how powerful our thoughts and mental well-being can be. Through mindfulness techniques, yoga and release exercises, students are shown how a relaxed and calm state of mind can help creativity flourish and aid us in accessing new ideas and thought processes. 

Devising Physical Theatre

2 hours

Physical theatre is a key component of most major contemporary works. As a performer, it is essential to have a good working knowledge of the body and how it can be used to communicate a variety of states, both physical and mental. 

This session will look at how to devise and develop physical motifs around a theme or subject matter. Text will also be incorporated in this work. 

Accessing Classical Text

2 hours

Classical text can appear daunting and dull to many. This workshop will aim to provide access to the most complex of text and give you a way to bring it to life as a performer. Being comfortable with classical text can aid actors in their interpretation of contemporary work, as the acknowledgment of imagery, rhythm and punctuation is essential across all texts.
