As a company we pride ourselves not only in the high quality shows that we produce but also in the rich pedagogical training we offer local creatives alongside this work. Our shared training in the methods of l’École internationale de théâtre Jacques Lecoq makes every member of the company qualified to run workshops in devising and physical theatre. In the past, we have let audiences behind the scenes of our work, inviting them into our rehearsal process. For No One we provided workshops in Oslo for 40 drama students in VG 1, 2 and 3 aged 14-18 years old. We led two workshops concurrently, one in stage combat and the other in physical theatre and ensemble work.
