Recently I was at an IB Theatre training session in Dubai with Sherri Sutton, and we were looking at some companies that use the devising process. It was amazing particularly to see how some companies use technology now in their work. This blog will focus on some companies that you may use in work with your students. I will start with a list of companies and then follow with some links to their work.
Some devising companies you may be interested in are:
The Wooster Group – working with a fusion of live performance techniques and technology.
Frantic Assembly – exploring movement, tension and planes, with spacial and character dynamics.
Red Leap – using movement, puppetry, transformative sets and innovative music.
Here is a director, actor, writer, film-maker and multi-media artist that will inspire you. Robert Lepage:
