School performances and workshops are available as part of Chrysalis festival which showcases ambitious performance by young theatre-makers.

Our school performances are a unique opportunity to see high-quality work by young companies from Germany, London, and Scotland. The workshops will help you and your students develop the skills to talk confidently about theatre, which links to the Drama ‘Performance Analysis’ Higher, and the ‘Project Dissertation’ in Advanced Higher.

Thinking of bringing a group to Chrysalis? This afternoon session, designed for teachers and practitioners will put you ahead of the game. We delve into the Chrysalis programme, pulling out key themes and discussion topics and exploring them in new ways. Participants will also be introduced to exercises used in our Young Critics programme, to consider how these can be used to support young people to discover their critical voice when viewing performance.
