Waste of Space Theatre Co Easter workshop 2011

Posted on 1st Mar 2011 by Steve Smith

Waste of Space theatre co was set up to give young, talented people the chance to experience being in a professional contemporary theatre company through outstanding,  high-quality “workshopping” in the devised theatre arts, contemporary dance, drama and physical theatre.

The company is run by Rachel Thomson and Joe Morrow. Rachel is a teacher of Dance based in London, specialising in contemporary dance up to A-Level. As well as this she is working on a piece of choreography in collaboration with Bim Malcomson with the Royal Ballet’s schools partnership. Rachel is also currently undertaking an MA in Dance Education at the University of Bedfordshire, which focuses on Laban’s theories of high quality dance and choreographic outcomes and how to achieve this.

Joe is an actor, currently based at The Italia Conti drama school. Joe is an accomplished actor, musician, composer and film editor as well as having a passion for physical theatre. Lately he has been writing the music for a new musical based on Jack the Ripper, rehearsing for the very demanding lead role in a play called “Festen” as well as working on his dissertation, a play based on the life of Noel Coward. We have so far led three very successful performance projects and our next one is coming up in Easter.

Waste of Space Theatre Company 2010 workshop in progress

Those who take part in this project experience a taste of degree-level workshops in a safe and creative environment, culminating in a performance at the end of the week. The process and performance is filmed and each participant receives a copy of their own. This project would be particularly suited to gifted and talented individuals but also anyone with a passion for the performing arts. The age range of our participants is 16-25+ (no upper age limit). The project is only £60 to take part in, with a reduction to just £50 if booked before the end of February (an absolute bargain). Participants are also able to invite people to see them in the final performance, as well as receiving a DVD copy of the project.

The project is running at Starlight Academy Dance Mill, Guiseley on 18-22 April.
