Beyond the make-up - workshops and Q and A
NoLogoProductions are proud to offer a range of workshops, performances and Q and A sessions to explore the issues raised in the play and provide practical exercises to give people confidence and means to address personal issues and express themselves through writing and performing.
We draw on our experience of delivering a wide range of courses and presentations to young audiences and adults. Moj has delivered over 3,500 talks to over 400,000 teenagers via PUSH: an award-winning non-profit organisation he runs. He also delivers comedy workshops for young people to help them develop their soft skills and confidence, with Comedy Club 4 Kids. Andy has devised and delivered creative writing courses in fiction, non-fiction and playwriting for adults of all ages and provides mentoring and support to new writers.
We offer an interactive workshop which deals with the themes of identity, gender, family, creativity, and an exploration of societal pressures. The workshop can be run over a half day, or a whole day, with the aim being to help people understand their own identity and those of others, as well as barriers/challenges that can stop us becoming the most confident version of who we are, and ways to overcome them.
The workshop is designed by Moj Taylor, drawing on his experiences of devising and delivering presentations for Push (Push Talks) a not-for-profit organisation that supports school-leavers and students to make informed decisions about their futures and to have the skills and confidence to help to realise their goals. It will include readings of scenes of the play, role plays/improvisations, discussions, presentations and wider performance technique exercises. A worksheet which participants can take away with wider links related to the themes of the workshop and the play will also be offered.
Alternatively, we offer creative writing workshops which explore writing prompts, generating ideas for writing, writing about yourself and turning ideas into stories. These workshops are devised and run by Andy Moseley drawing on the highly successful creative writing courses in fiction, non-fiction and playwriting he ran for The Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington
We also offer a Q&A, with Moj and Andy which can take place after a performance of the show, or as part of the workshop. The Q and A can cover any topic from the themes in the play to developing the play under lockdown conditions in 2020 as well as our previous work and pretty much anything else you want to ask us.
