The ARDENT8 project offers 10 workshops led by industry professionals.

The first 5 workshops wider delivered by guest directors Caroline Byrne, Caitriona McLaughlin, Simeilia Hodge-Dallaway, Sean Holmes and Daphna Attias. These workshops covered monologue work from established texts, working on scenes from new writing, improvisation and devising, and an opportunity to write and direct their own short scenes.

The next 5 workshops began on Thursday 15th February 2018 with a workshop led by casting Director Ben Cogan and continues with a classical theatre workshop from director Sue Dunderdale.

“I learned to be confident in my belief that I am an artist.

“Dusting the cobwebs off and getting stuck back into performing. It reminded me why I do want to do this.”
