Working with people and sharing our practice is at the heart of what we do. Common Wealth workshops can be one hour or 5 days. Whatever workshop length we have, some essentials are at the core – working with our instincts and making something from nothing.
We endeavour to show that being an artist, making something, is central to us all, it’s part of being human – being inventive, responsive, building, making, playing.
From a 3-day residential with survivors of domestic abuse to making a site-specific play in 5 days with a cast of 25, to running workshops for artists and facilitators. We’re open to lots of ways of working and looking at different ways we can develop, learn and share our process as a company.
Where possible we like to work as a company to facilitate, which means workshops can include electronic music, visual design and writing.
We deliver site-specific theatre workshops that aim to give drama and performance teachers ideas and approaches to making site-specific theatre. We are experienced facilitators and will work with you to design something for your school or college.
We are also available for lectures and talks. We have previously talked about site specific design, political theatre, socially engaged practice, audiences, cultural democracy, class and the role of the political artist.
