Devising Theatre Exercises with The Wardrobe Ensemble
About The Wardrobe Ensemble:
The Wardrobe Ensemble is a Bristol-based group of theatre artists working together to make and tour new plays. They explore the big ideas of our time through intimate human stories and bold imagery. They consist of nine core members, one producer and a constantly growing community of associate artists and work as a democratic devising ensemble wherein every member contributes to research, writing, structuring and performing of a show, creating a unique shared theatrical language and aesthetic from show to show. We have made a variety of shows for all ages and at the heart of all our work is a desire to tell a compelling story in a visually engaging and inventive way.
