Talks & Workshops
Unfinished Histories can offer a range of tailor-made workshops, talks and presentations to organisations, venues, universities, colleges and schools, on themes relating to the work and practices of alternative theatre.
Unfinished Histories theatre workshops give participants the chance to investigate different creative practices employed by the alternative theatre movement and look at how these ideas can be used to develop performance pieces of their own.
Talks and Presentations
We are able to offer talks and presentations on a variety of alternative theatre topics including:
>The history and practices of alternative theatre
>Women’s theatre companies
>Black and Asian theatre companies
>The work of Unfinished Histories
>Documenting and archiving
Talks and presentations draw on material taken from our oral history interviews and the archive material we have located and documented.
Oral History Workshops
Training and advice on how to set up and run oral history projects including technical expertise.
Part of the work of Unfinished Histories is locating, documenting and placing archive material associated with alternative theatre:
>Posters and fliers
>Company and production photos
>Unpublished and out of print scripts
>Plays, books and articles from the period
We are accruing a substantial amount of this memorabilia and are able to offer theatres, colleges and libraries the opportunity of commissioning an exhibition from us for their community and art spaces.
