How to take care of audiences without compromising artistic intent.

Art not only entertains but expands our thinking.   With theatrical immersion changing our views of audience engagement,  do we need to change our structures around audience care; where is the line between challenge and care?  Along with this Theatres are becoming increasingly aware of having appropriate trigger warnings, so how do we ensure that we care enough about the people seeing our work but continue to challenging appropriately? 

This workshop is designed to offer a space for companies and artists to think about how to support audiences effectively from page to stage.  When to ask the important questions about audience care during rehearsals, and how to set your own boundaries within your work. 

Nikki Disney is a theatre director, Dramatherapist and founder of Stageweight focusing on boundaries in theatre work and the well-being of all involved.  Through her training and work she has developed systems to challenge appropriately and ensure care for all involved.
