Black Sheep Collective is hosting a range of free online performance practice workshops open to all creatives, artists and members of the community. This is a great opportunity to be inspired, learn something new and escape the monotony of our present situation

We have a range of performance practice workshops facilitated by professional arts practitioners in a safe inclusive environment, free and open to all which I’ve detailed below.

Clowning Around – Tuesday 30th March – 7:00pm until 9:00pm

Work with actor and theatre practitioner Jack Smith in this exciting Clowning Masterclass exploring the key theatrical skills of clowning. A chance to play, create and most importantly fail. In this 2-hour whirl-wind of a workshop, you’ll have a chance to be your inner clown, feel what it’s like to be in a sticky situation and laugh at yourself. Perfect for actors, creatives or anyone that wants 2 hours of fun and something different, very different.

Improv 101: And Scene! – Saturday 3rd April – 11:15am until 1:15pm

To improvise is to feel free! Improv is all around us. It informs our relationships with people. It builds confidence, expression and spontaneity in ourselves. Through practised games like “Quick Change” and “Expert”, and scene-making exercises starting with the golden rule “yes and”, Improv 101: And Scene! is an empowering space, one which first unearths parts of your imagination you didn’t know existed, and then invites you to draw up original characters on the fly! Come and learn this invaluable skill with Tom Scudamore, in this unique performance forum!

Well-being workshop with Becoming Michaela – Tuesday 6th April – 6:30pm until 8:00pm

Becoming Michaela is a platform on Instagram created by actor and singer Michaela Blackburn (Olivier Award-nominated for Our Lady of Kibeho) where she shares her self-love journey to encourage and inspire others to love themselves unapologetically.

Join Michaela’s well-being workshop designed to improve self-esteem, confidence and decrease anxiety within a safe supportive space for creatives.

Michaela will be sharing tips and exercises that you can apply and use in your everyday life and professional creative career to help guide you through challenges and ambitions. At the moment as creatives we’re going through a difficult time in our careers, so come and join this workshop for some rest-bite and well-deserved self-care.

We invite anyone and everyone to attend and you can discover how to sign up to one of our performance practice workshops in the box you can see below my sig. We have more education, outreach and creative projects coming soon.

Until next time,
