Clout Theatre have an education and outreach programme that reflects our passion for devising theatre and working as an ensemble. Our workshops and master classes have taken us all over the world to China, Russia, Turkey and throughout the UK and Europe. Our teaching is based on creation as an ensemble, taking risks and the importance of ‘play’.
We have collaborated with schools, universities, charities and professional performers. All of our workshops are tailor made to the requirements and level of each group and we encourage those with no previous experience to come and have a go!
Primarily based on the pedagogy of Jacques Lecoq as well as our own theatre practice we strive to inspire and challenge our participants.
Clout are also available to collaborate with schools, theatre courses and professional companies on a long term project-to-project basis. We recently collaborated with the Physical Theatre Scotland students at Summerhall on their end of year showcase Crepuscule.
'Clout brought a steely playfulness to our work and managed to create a disparate group of devised pieces into an entertaining and cohesive whole. They were inspirational, challenging and charming collaborators and I would recommend them to any aspiring performers as mentors or teachers.'
