Week-long Devising Residency at UoC



In the February half-term Bootworks spent a week working Musical Theatre students on a new module called ‘Devising for Theatre’ at The University of Chichester. Students learned the basic principles of devising whilst nurturing their own ideas. By the end of the week the students had made 3x 20 minute pieces of new theatre work.
