Is a forum for artists and performers to explore theatre techniques and apply them creatively in their work. The sessions can be lead either by a guest practitioner or by a Dende member. The Lab offers a space and an opportunity to meet creatively, sharpen skills, acquire news ones and stretch the imagination. Sometimes we use our Lab sessions to develop an aspect of a future show, this is an opportunity to work with professionals we have not worked with before and share our creative approach to making work.

Don’t miss this opportunity to play with Dende Collective!
