We facilitate spaces that foster courage and invite participants to take risks and celebrate and support each other.

 

We run these in schools, colleges, LGBTQAI+ youth groups, in theatre venues, and for performers and theatre-makers of different disciplines. 

 

Examples Include:

Feminist 
theatre-making

 

A practical and playful workshop for devisers, theatre-makers, aspiring writers, and anyone who wants to experiment and create in a supportive environment.

Empowering
actors

An intimate and empowering workshop for actors of marginalised genders in need of a confidence-boosting break from being sidelined or stereotyped. 

Selling your
feminist show

An informative and insightful workshop aimed at individuals and theatre companies thinking about producing and/or marketing their own show.

Gender
and persona

 

A fun and reflective, physical workshop exploring gender expression, stereotypes and how to develop characters inspired by day-to-day life. 

"We've worked with Bechdel Theatre for a number of years.

Pippa and Beth create really engaging workshops which allow students to explore ideas around gender and identity.

The exercises are imaginative and suitably challenging. 

Their skills as facilitators allow students to reflect on their work and practice through open and reflective discussions."

- Lee White, Florida State University (London Theatre Academy)
