New physical theatre courses

physical%20theatre%20Waiters%209831A new physical theatre course has been launched at Déda in Derby, which aims to improve budding actors’ understanding of the different aspects of the work.

The first six week course – Physical Theatre and Comedy is already running and a second course focusing on Physical Theatre and Performance starts on November 12.

Both are run by accomplished actor and director Gerry Flanagan who runs Shifting Sands Theatre Company in Matlock.

Déda’s head of dance development and learning Clare Limb said: “The Physical Theatre course is open to anyone aged 16 and over and we hope that it will encourage many more people into the performing arts and expand the repertoire of those already involved in theatre.”

The six week courses at Déda in Chapel Street cost £72.
