Joanna Scanlan: 2 Hour Challenge



October 13, 2023




Theatre Royal Haymarket

Join BAFTA award-winning actor Joanna Scanlan, and director Tania Black, as you collaborate to create a brand-new performance in just 2 hours. This practical Masterclass mines the very origins of theatre, exploring how the chorus can be used to create powerful moments of community.

Inspired by practitioners like Augusto Boal, Joanna Scanlan and Tania Black will issue a dilemma to participants in the form of a monologue. Participants will react in the moment, improvising an emotional response to the dilemma – through words and/or music. Their responses will then be recorded by our team of writers, as we work quickly and collaboratively towards a final sharing.

With a renewed commitment to community engagement from Arts Council England, this Masterclass is a must for anyone making work in the subsidised sector.

There are limited places available for this workshop so if you'd like to workshop with Joanna and Tania, please complete this application form.
