TWR Friday Social - Theatre & Movement Directors Gathering

with Theatre Directors Scotland
05.03.21 | 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Online via Zoom

The Work Room and Theatre Directors Scotland are working in conjunction to host a gathering of TWR and TDS members. This event will bring together theatre directors, movement directors and choreographers interested in movement direction, to make connections, to start conversations and to find out about each other’s work and practice. The focus of this time will be to discuss working collaboratively throughout a production or project.

To help facilitate conversation we will open the event with a presentation from Dominic Hill and EJ Boyle who will discuss their integrated artistic process as Director and Movement Director/Choreographer respectively, which they have developed since first working together on Oresteia: This Restless House at the Citizens Theatre in 2016, and most recently A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Regent Park Open Air Theatre.

Dominic Hill is Artistic Director of Citizens Theatre in Glasgow.

EJ Boyle is a Movement Director and Choreographer working in theatre, film and large-scale events. Her recent credits include the premiere of Tom Stoppard’s new play Leopoldstadt (Wyndhams Theatre), Nora: A Doll’s House (Citizens Theatre and Young Vic) and Exit the King (National Theatre).

We will then split into smaller breakout areas where there will be an opportunity to talk more about your own practice and learn about others. This event aims to foster the beginnings of conversations and relationships and attendees are asked to come prepared to share a bit about their work share contacts for futures connections.

This event is part of The Work Room Friday socials programme and you can book your place by emailing sara@theworkrom.org.uk.
