FAILURE Lab 

Weekly classes and workshop intensives with performance focus. Develop skills in improvisation and performance, using movement, voice and text, and images created with the body, costumes and objects.

Courses are open to newcomers to performance, as well as to creative professionals with a practice in writing, visual or performance art, music, dance and theatre. A supportive space for exchange between people and across art forms.

Creative practice draws from a variety of sources including: contact improvisation dance, comedy improvisation, physical theatre and devising, writing, vocal play, and research on FAILURE relating to cultural, queer and feminist theory. Click here for classes calendar.
