More Information on By, For, With: Greek Theatre: Introduction to Tragedy

What does tragedy mean to us now?

How has the staging and performing of Greek tragedy been transformed over the years?

Greek theatre practitioner, performer and drama teacher Nikoletta Thoma guides participants in developing tragic characters through the use of monologues, play and performance. Exploring tragedy through both the voice and body, participants will gain a deeper understanding of traditional Greek practices, as well as a range of transferable skills to apply to all kinds of theatre making.

An interactive workshop for performers, directors, and theatre makers of all kinds. This is a virtual event to be held over Zoom.

By, For, With is a series of workshops at Leeds Playhouse run by, for, and with local artists.

Captioned Performance

Open captioning allows theatre goers with varying degrees of hearing to view the full text as it is spoken or sung, including sound effects and off stage noises. These appear on a scrolling screen, positioned on or at the side of the stage.

British Sign Language Interpreted

A signed performance is the usual full production using either the creative use of sign integrated into the performance or a British Sign Language Interpreter on stage interpreting the show for D/deaf attendees.

Audio Described

Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attendees. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the customer can wear a headset and listen to a live description of the action on stage.

Relaxed Performance

A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities. This may include extra lighting, additional wheelchair spaces and the freedom to move to alternative seating if required.

Dementia-Friendly Performance

Dementia friendly performances are for all audiences. The theatre experience is enhanced for people living with dementia and their supporters, with adaptations to front of house service, the show and pre-show information packs. Additional dementia-aware staff, quiet spaces, clear signage and visual markers, sound and lighting adjustments and flexible seating options all help to create a supportive, shared experience.

Sing Along

Singalong with the cast in this exclusive performance. Join in as loud as you like, fancy dress is optional but highly recommended.

Parent & Baby Performance

A Parent and Baby performance enables parents to attend the theatre with their baby (under 12 months). We make small adaptations to the lighting and sound effects, including keeping the auditorium lights slightly raised. The seating is unallocated and there is a relaxed attitude to noise.

Socially Distanced Performance

A guaranteed socially distanced performance provides seating with additional space between bubbles to allow appropriate social distancing.
