We are committed to making our practice accessible to our audiences and enjoy sharing our skills and methods of devising through our workshop programme. We are keen to engage with a range of different people in a variety of community settings and our workshops can be suited to all, from young to old!

‘My experience with Haste Theatre was beyond incredible! Together we devised such a funny but thought-provoking performance that we all felt proud of. Haste are amazing at including everyone’s ideas and giving our generation a voice through theatre which was so special’
(Nia Galli, participant in a devising youth project)
‘Haste really helped us bring our ideas to life and create a very comedic, but still totally thought-provoking piece of theatre. With this amazing group of people, everything you learn is so enjoyable and incredibly useful for anyone interested in theatre and performance.’
(Daisy Thomas, participant in devising youth project)
‘Our students had a fantastic experience with Haste Theatre Company’s performance of Oyster Boy and the physical theatre workshop that followed it… It basically helped my students begin to imagine and create in a physical way. It was a tremendously useful and engrossing experience for them. I would definitely recommend it to all drama departments!’
(Baris Celiloglu, Performing Arts Course Leader, Sir George Monoux Sixth Form College)
Our workshops can be adapted to meet your particular needs and are suitable for both young people and adults. Most often we explore the key rehearsal practices of the European physical theatre tradition. Some of the skills we focus on are:
We offer these workshops to explore themes such as bullying and inclusion through different Drama games, and then culminating in some Forum Theatre. Using an extract from our award winning show ‘Oyster Boy’, we performed a scene that exemplified these themes and then gave the students a chance to step in and change the outcomes for the characters.
‘It made me more aware about bullying and also how just by changing one tiny scene it can change something by a lot’
Student from St Paul’s Juniors, participant in workshop
This project was designed to offer school pupils an insight into our key rehearsal and performance practices. It includes a performance of Oyster Boy and a post-performance skills workshop. We have toured this project to a number of primary schools, secondary schools and colleges across the UK. This project is ongoing – please do not hesitate to get in touch and we will gladly arrange a visit to your school or college.
