WHAT WE DO FOR YOU
BRUSH UP YOUR SKILLS
Examples of the workshops conducted so far are:
1. Duality & Dionysian Mysteries: A Character Development Workshop - This workshop is titled Duality as the key theme running through my work is conflict, divide, loss, and the split way in which we can experience emotions and reality. We will look at Dionysian Mysteries, a liberating ritual that took place in Rome and Greece, which encouraged a loss of inhibition to reveal a greater understanding of human psychology. We will use elements of this ritual to guide our performance work. This workshop had 12 attendees.
2. Act It Out - An improvisation workshop focusing on Keith Johnstone’s technique and utilising new-writing from the company to prompt participants. This workshop had 30 attendees.
3. Masques Off - Theatre of absolute cruelty. Welcome to the world of Antonin Artaud. We are going to explore anti-theatre and the performativity of madness. Or is it madness? Lose your composure and take your masques off. We will be smashing up the proscenium arch. This workshop had 18 attendees.
It is crucial that the work of MZL Productions involves women of colour and immigrant artists who are part of arts institutions in London, however, through pre-existing workshops, auditions, and performances, we have seen the enthusiasm and willingness of artists from varied walks of life to get involved with us. It is by breaking barriers and allowing juxtapositions to form creative relationships via collaboration that we can continue to produce work of the highest quality, emphasising voices of those who relate to and understand global narratives, and then go on to bring this work to British audiences.
We want you to be seen and heard. We will prioritise the work that we create as a company, but also spotlight individual artists by finding and creating opportunities to publicise interdisciplinary and individual art wherever possible.
