More Info...


A selected group of 18 artists will delve deep into a positive week of performance theory, creation techniques and critical conversation with Bryony Kimmings.


Kimmings offers a full run-down of her making process detailing how to create watertight and interesting concepts, avoid creative blocks and self-doubt whilst preparing you for creative lift off with a wide range of practical tools to use in your own work.


Suitable for theatre makers, dancers, performance artists, graduates, writers, cabaret stars, circus bods: anyone who wants to move into telling their own stories or needs a refresh!


You don’t need to come with a ready made idea; you will spend the week coming up with umpteen new shows, titles, narrative arcs, and loads of material. The week ends with an informal and uplifting sharing session and signposting for the future.

Previous Alumni Testimonies


“Kimmings is a brilliant artist but she also has a fantastic knack for sharing her skills. If there are any magnificent ideas lying around in the sub-strata, this week-long series of kinetic exercises and mental expeditions will root them out.”

“The week of workshops was fantastic and helpful beyond anything I could have expected. Bryony gave us practical tactics to combat writers’ and creative blocks of all kinds, whilst being so generous and supportive of our individual passions and needs. And music and dancing!”

"Bryony Kimming’s Workshop Week is absolutely fantastic. Bryony held the space with incredible care and created a truly supportive space for us all to share and create. I left the week feeling inspired, invigorated and empowered to enter my next creative process. Whether you have a creative idea that you want to develop, or are just in need of a refresh, I highly recommend joining Bryony’s residency."
