The Lab

30 March 2020 – 1 April 2020

The LAB is a three-day training course in Clean Break's practice and philosophy. It is for theatre artists who are passionate about women’s experiences, committed to social justice and interested in theatre practice in prisons, criminal justice, and community settings.

It is a unique opportunity to work over three days with Clean Break’s Joint Artistic Directors, Anna Herrmann and Róisín McBrinn, to learn in depth about Clean Break’s specialised approach to theatre and criminal justice.

Working collaboratively with Clean Break Members, participants will develop new skills through a combination of practice and presentation whilst exploring the central themes of resilience, voice and inclusion through theatre: what does empowerment look like? Whose voices are being fore-fronted and how do we enable individuals from diverse backgrounds to thrive in the theatre industry and beyond?

Dedicated sessions will focus on:

  • theatre in prison settings
  • trauma-informed practice

Throughout the workshop the group will draw on Clean Break’s best practice, developed and refined over our 40 years in the industry.

Open to any participants who identify as a woman.
