New York IB Workshop 2018

October 11 - October 13, 2018

Booking Closed


DP Theatre Category 1 and 2 Booking has now closed. For details of our next workshops please visit : the workshops event page or contact Ian for further details.


Master classes

All teachers will take part in one 90 minute master class focussing on either a specific aspect of the art form through the work of PUSH Theatre or SITI.



All teachers will attend two professional theatre performances.

The first is a bespoke performance from renowned physical theatre company Push Theatre.

The second is Broadway’s COME FROM AWAY. A Best Musical winner all across North America, written by Tony nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein. This New York Times Critics’ pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

Registration is now open.

Any bookings taken after September the 1st will be subject to a late booking fee.

Travel forms from artists due by Thursday 30th August 2018.
A full information pack will be sent to all participants three weeks prior to the workshop.
