Join multi-award winning comedian Tessa Waters in two one day workshops to hone your skills in comedy, sketch and performing skills.
The techniques and exercises in these workshops will open you to your own sensitivity, giving you access to your instincts and your power as a performer. You'll learn how to find joy in your performance, and how to build your relationship with the audience to get the best out of them.
Theatre makers, musicians, circus performers, dancers and performers of any kind are welcome!
This is as accessible to the first-timer as it is to the seasoned performer.
