What’s the point of theatre anyway? A workshop with Tim Crouch

Brighton Dome, Founders Room, Church Street, , Brighton, BN1 1UE

Isn’t it time we jacked it all in? Who are we kidding? How do we compete with the digital stuff? Who wants to go out any more? Who can afford it? What can theatre do that our computers can’t?

In this workshop, we’ll think about these questions. We’ll look at what still makes theatre so vital in the modern world. We’ll celebrate its unique features – its liveness, togetherness, the presence of an audience, a community, the potential to change lives through watching as well as doing. We’ll think and we’ll play. We won’t sort it all out but we’ll have a good go.

  • When: Sunday 4 February 2024
  • Coffee and Networking from 9.30-10.30
  • Workshop 10.30-12.30
  • Where: Founders Room, Brighton Dome, Church Street, Brighton, BN1 1UE

Good to know

Tim Crouch is performing Truth’s a Dog, Must to Kennel at the Brighton Dome Studio Theatre from Wednesday 31 January to Saturday 3 February. You might want to go to see it. We will be taking a group of our members to see it on the Saturday evening. Maybe see you there!

Who is it for

This workshop is for professional artists who earn some or all of their living through their theatre-making. This is the first of a regular series of workshops we will be hosting in the City. We feel there are not enough opportunities for theatre practitioners to access affordable professional development or to network with each other. We hope this workshop will be both useful and enjoyable. We are looking forward to meeting you.

How much

£15 for 1-hour networking and 2-hour workshop.
