The Gate Theatre's Artistic Director, Christopher Haydon, will be running a workshop specifically looking at the process of creating dynamic space for performers.

How do we get actors to inhabit and move around the stage naturally in a manner that creates pleasing images? How do we bring the stage to life? What basic techniques can be used so directors can make the most of the space?

Chris is currently directing Agamemnon for The Iphigenia Quartet. This is a practical workshop with the opportunity to ask questions.

All are welcome but this will be most beneficial for directors and actors in the early stage of their careers.

Tickets are £10. Location: Harrow Club, 187 Freston Road, London W10 6TH (closest station: Latimer Road). This venue is not wheelchair accessible.
