FREE TWO DAY WORKSHOP FOR DIRECTORS EXPLORING SOUND AND MUSIC IN THEATRE AT SALISBURY PLAYHOUSE
JMK Directors Residency at Salisbury Playhouse Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 September 10-6pm (PLUS evening lighting session on Tuesday 20 September – TBC)
Award winning composer and sound designer for theatre and TV Richard Hammarton leads a practical two day residency in working with sound and music in theatre. There will also be the opportunity to explore lighting in The Salberg at Salisbury Playhouse (more details on this to follow). The sessions will give the participants a language in order to collaborate with both sound designers and composers so that they feel empowered to express themselves to these key artistic collaborators as well as an insight into the creative process of making the sonic environment of a production.
Richard has worked extensively in UK theatre and internationally including at the Royal Court, Young Vic, Old Vic, The Globe and Salisbury Playhouse as well as for the Ivor Novello winning TV series Ripper Street.
The JMK Trust works to find and support the next generation of talented theatre directors.
