WAR HORSE PAGE-TO-STAGE PRE-SHOW SCHOOLS EVENT

WAR HORSE LEARNING

To celebrate War Horse galloping its way back onto the Sunderland Empire stage, Creative Learning and Community Partnerships are working with National Theatre Learning in planning an extensive range of activities to coincide with and complement the learning and creative outreach potential of this significant production. We invite teachers to contact us to express an interest and discuss how your school can benefit from the inspiring education resources of War Horse. Here is our provisional offer of War Horse Learning.

WAR HORSE PUPPETRY WORKSHOP Designed to give students a hands-on understanding of how to create characters through puppetry and physicality; the workshops give a taste of the devising process through which the War Horse horses come to life. This workshop will be run by National Theatre practitioners who have worked as performers and puppeteers in the production. Cost: £180+VAT

These onstage pre-show events are specifically designed to unlock the extraordinary creative learning opportunities of War Horse. Students will have the unique experience of interacting with members of the War Horse Creative and Acting Company and the National Theatre’s Learning team to explore some of the background principles of puppetry, the rehearsal and technical processes that have brought this magical production to life, as well as a chance to ask questions of company members at the end.
