Richard Wheatley who has attended both VICTA and Extant workshops and is now finding success as a comedian, having recently performed at the Edinburgh Festival, said of the benefits of performing:

“When I am on stage I know that I have control, no need to catch someone’s eye or shout to make myself heard. The only things I have to react to are the laughs of the people focusing on me, people who are reacting to me, a loop that starts with my antics and feeds back to me what I should do next.

People often say that performing comedy takes courage, and I’ll admit that before a gig I am usually nervous, but once I’m on stage it’s just like a conversation with friends. I’ve always enjoyed jokes and comedy, so it’s exactly how I communicate anyway”.

This is a fantastic opportunity to dive into the world of performing arts, whatever your preferred discipline and find out where it takes you!

Participants will need to make their own way to the venue at their own cost and provide their own lunch.
