Vamos Emerging Artists Taster Workshops (various dates)

We are excited that the Vamos Emerging Artists programme 2024 is now open.

Each year the programme invites emerging and inquisitive young artists from diverse communities across the country to take part in free or subsidised mask taster sessions, learning mask techniques, creating physical character and devising non-verbal theatre that connects and moves audiences.

From these taster workshops, we bring together a group of artists for a residency to create and perform mask theatre from shared stories and backgrounds, finalising in public performances.

We welcome everyone, and particularly deaf and disabled artists and artists from low socio-economic and/or diverse ethnic backgrounds, to take part. Vamos Theatre is an inclusive company; please let us know how we can make accessing this programme easier for you.

Devising Mask and Non-Verbal Theatre (various dates)

Get excited and confident about devising, using mask, and exploring non-verbal theatre at one of Vamos Theatre’s creative, high-energy and inspiring days for teachers (KS3+) and theatre practitioners. Through shared exploration, games and exercises that you can take straight back to the classroom, you’ll gain a thorough introduction to using full mask and non-verbal theatre with your students, exploring mask characterisation and mask physicality, plus specifics such as clocking, stillness and isolation. You’ll learn ways to devise and create non-verbal stories that have clarity and impact, helping to build your confidence in teaching devising and mask performance in your schemes of work.  

 Led by Vamos Theatre’s Creative Producer, Honor Hoskins.
