Join Katie Green over 2 days in November, to consider the heritage of the City and particularly Plymouth’s role within the story of the sailing of the Mayflower as a starting point for choreography.
This workshop will particularly look at the theme of journeys – the small, personal journeys that have taken place in our lives, as well as big journeys such as the one made by the Pilgrims who first sailed from Plymouth to America on the Mayflower nearly 400 years ago – and think about approaches to using this theme in our own work.
Date: 11th of November 2017
Two sessions: 11.00-1.00 and 2.00-4.00

Barbican Theatre is an Arts Award Centre and authorised to deliver Sports Leaders – we offer young people the chance to take part in national schemes that recognise young people’s development through the arts.
The primary aim of both qualifications is to treat young people as young artists, helping them to develop their own arts practice, to engage with the world of the arts and to share their skills through leadership projects.
Arts Award and Sports Leaders are national qualifications and accessible to any young person aged 11-24, they embrace all cultural interests and backgrounds and are a great addition to any CV or UCAS application.
There are three levels of Arts Award (Bronze, Silver, Gold); Sports Leaders have Levels 1 & 2. They can be entered at any level and participants can be absolute beginners or very skilled in their art form; by the time you have finished you will have gained a level three qualification (equivalent to 35 and 30 UCAS points respectively for Gold Arts Award and Sports Leaders 2).
Aims of the Arts Award at all levels are to:
Encourage young people to enjoy and take part in the arts, now and throughout their lives
Promote achievement in the arts among young people
Provide opportunities for collaborative work and leadership that will promote young people’s broader personal development
Help young people to find progression routes in the arts
Encourage new art forms, innovation and experimentation
