Practise, Reflect, Share: Saturday 17th June at Rose Bruford College, Sidcup

The Stanislavski Centre and Stanislavski Studies is supporting and co-presenting the following one-day event.

Practise, Reflect, Share: Ways into Research

Saturday 17th June 9am-5pm

Aimed primarily at those involved in the training of performers, directors, designers and technicians, this one-day event hosted by Rose Bruford College offers a unique opportunity to meet with colleagues and explore ways of highlighting, discussing and reflecting on your work as teachers, practitioners and researchers.

Activities will include presentations and provocations, round-table discussions and a chance to meet with colleagues and explore ways of collaborating, sharing good practice and disseminating your work, especially as research. Guest speakers and presenters at this event include Miguel Mera, Aleks Sierz and Talia Rodgers.

The event will explore practice as research but if you are interested in text-based publishing and are unsure of who to approach or the best way of going about this, there will be an opportunity to meet with the editors of a range of journals including Theatre, Dance and Performance Training, Stanislavski Studies, Theatre and Performance Design and the Journal of Embodied Research.

 This is a perfect event for colleagues interested in seeking advice and support in developing and publishing their work.

Admission is free. Tea and Coffee will be available throughout the day and lunch and snacks will be available from the Rose Bruford Café.
