NTI Visit: Theatre Bootcamp

Just wrapped 12 days working with 24 students, who were visiting London from the National Theatre Institute in America. NTI students engage in a 14-week intensive 'theatre bootcamp' in which they train as actors, movers, writers, designers, directors, singers, etc. Hyphenates.

They also spend two weeks in London seeing plays, meeting professionals, and training with Complicite. As a regular teacher with NTI and former student, I escort them around the city, and teach them some playwriting whilst they're here. We saw 11 plays in 11 days: Behind the Beautiful Forevers (The National), Othello (Lyric), Dara (National), How To Hold Your Breath (Royal Court), Kim Noble's You're Not Alone (Soho), The Nether, The Scottsboro Boys, Bull (Young Vic), Once, Ultima Vez (Sadler's Wells), and A View From the Bridge (Young Vic transfer).

Here are some photos I took during the two weeks.
