To Be or not To Be at NAYT... That is the question

Raising the Game: National Association of Youth Theatre event

Raising the game, an NAYT event packed with workshops and opportunities for youth theatres groups to join and learn more. Held at the Derby theatre in derby, the weekend was filled with a variety of amazing workshops, such as working with large cast, socially conscious, play-writing and mask and physical and led by incredible practitioners.

I really enjoyed it and tried to join into as many things as I could. I particularly enjoy the working with large cast workshop. I feel it helped me think about different ways to devise stories and characters with minimal changes and by adding simple gestures.

As a young person with a different creative background it was refreshing to learn different techniques which I can apply to my photography and filming. It was also a good opportunity for me to meet and network with other practitioners from different art forms, so overall it was a well worth event to attend.

These are photos from the workshops I attended over the weekend.





It was a lot of fun taking part in some of the workshops. It was nice meeting new people and exploring new ways to make theatre more fun and engaging for young people.
