Merging the worlds of creativity, performance and self development.
The Beginners Play Day is for those who have never played before.
This is a gentle introduction to Improvisation which is all about inspired play, creating something from nothing.
It is a great way to get in touch with writers block, to channel expression, build confidence and become more of who you are. It can also help with your performance if you are looking to go into theater.
Games are the perfect metaphor for life. We all know that to get by day by day, year by year we must understand and comply with the 'rules of the game'. If we decide at any time to break them, to imagine without constraint, to play fast and loose, then we are reasserting the glorious primacy of free and undirected play.
That is why, perhaps, at such moments of transgression we feel fully alive "man is most nearly himself" said Heraclitus, 'when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play.' Yes play is a serious matter, thank goodness it is fun. We must be prepared to take on the dragons of conformity as Evgeny Schwartz, the great Russian storyteller realised: 'The only way to get rid of the dragons is to have one of your own.

A review from a participant who came to one of our weekend workshops wrote:
" A fabulously unique experience, playing, moving and laughing with like-minded people. This workshop has opened a door that I didn’t know existed! Highly enjoyable yet so authentic to our experiences, a real insight into how play can safely unearth so many colours within us. I have left feeling completely inspired and energised; thank you Daniella for bringing back my creativity!"
