Schools and Colleges

We offer bespoke workshops to primary and secondary schools as well as universities, youth clubs, theatre groups and drama societies.

Our workshops are tailored to the needs of the participants and can be designed to complement or build on an existing curriculum or just to the interests of the group. Our workshops usually focus on devising methods, physical theatre and ensemble theatre making. We can also offer workshops that explore the themes of our productions to accompany a theatre visit. We can work with a small group, an entire year group, or even a whole school.

 

Our workshops are designed after careful consideration of the aims and needs of the group. Get in touch if you'd like to discuss a possible workshop in more detail.

 

What it's like having us in your school

“Tangled Feet’s energy, dedication and ideas have allowed our students to experience something very special, from the audience members who were tents and huge ‘flocks’ of people gliding across the playground to the Year 12s and 13s who got to perform alongside professionals. We have all gained so much”- Zoe Shepherd, Head of Drama, Beaumont School -
“What I found very effective about the way the company worked was their inclusive approach and their expectations of the students to work as professional alongside the practitioners. The practitioners were unique in their individual approach to different groups of students and being involved in the collaborative process which resulted in stimulating and imaginative work.”- Sophie Leader, Head of Drama, Wren Academy -

It's official: Tangled Feet is Fantastic for Families!

By Kat Joyce   We are very honoured to have been recognised with a prize for Best Family-Friendly Workplace Initiative' by the Fantastic for Families campaign.   Over the years the number of people in the ensemble with kids has grown to the point that there are now more children than adults in the TF tribe. So really, we had to adapt our working lives or we would just not have been able to carry on making work. The upshot of that is that, motivated by our long-standing commitments to working together, we've found loads of creative ways to accommodate people's parenting status.   The theatre industry can be horribly unfriendly towards parents and parents-to-be. I know of women who work at major buildings who privately report a culture where taking time out for motherhood marks you clearly as someone with no desire to succeed. I know actors who have been dropped by their agents during maternity leave because 'it doesn't seem like you want to return to work after your baby'. Others who've had to desperately scrabble around for childcare when production schedules are changed at the last minute. In an industry where there are always more creatives than there are jobs, and people often feel very precarious and disposable, many try to behave as if they don't have children, hiding their families out of sight. This is a real shame, as it means that talent and experience haemorrhage out of our industry as people (mainly women) find family lives incompatible with continuing to work.
