Join the cast of As SHE Likes It for an Empowerment Workshop at The Courtyard before the show.
Addressing issues raised in the play, the workshop will be run by two of the cast and is designed to empower womxn and non-binary people, using mental health, drag and comedy techniques, i.e., taking on the physical stance of famous women in history.
You’ll also have the opportunity to work with a fight coordinator, who will teach us some basic self-defence moves to end the workshop on. We’re having consultations with our drama therapist to ensure workshops offer a safe and inclusive space, and we are working with LGBTQ+ charity Out in the Bay, to ensure wording of workshops are trans-inclusive.
Aims of the workshop:
1. Help participants to recognise inappropriate behaviour whether it’s in the workplace, school, or other settings.
2. Discuss ways to tackle any issues safely, comfortably and appropriately in different settings.
3. Teach some basic self-defence moves in a fun and relaxed format.
