After more than a decade of successfully running the Playing for Your Audience performance training course, Theatre Lovett are happy to announce that in 2023, we will be running our Playing for Your Audience Advanced course.

This advanced week-long intensive practical course is led by Louis Lovett and develops the techniques of performance introduced in Playing For Your Audience first level course. The participants will have the opportunity to work on various techniques and even put some of them in use in front of children in local schools.

This course is open to participants who have previously completed Theatre Lovett’s Playing for Your Audience performance training course. If you haven’t taken part in our first level course yet, please visit Playing for Your Audience for more information.

Course Content

Louis Lovett will lead the participants through exercises to develop the performance techniques seen in Playing for Your Audience performance training. The week shall begin with an initial revision of the first level course content and continue to explore among others:

  • The Power of ‘Next’: Finding different ways to approach a moment and hiding the approach in order to surprise.
  • Physical Theatre techniques.
  • The status work of Keith Johnstone.
  • The Pictures we Make: Exploring the Seven Levels of Tension of Jacques Lecoq.

Throughout the week, the participants as a group will devise a number of short pieces for children of a specific age group. This will be performed before an audience of children in their own school setting.
