'Let's investigate anxiety'

Investigate workshops are 40 minutes in length and are fully participatory, going through some of the key areas around anxiety. Students are given the opportunity to explore and understand what anxiety is through dramatic practice and creates a sense that there is a communal experience of feeling anxious. Students interact in multiple ways including drama activities, gifted diaries to keep and write into, and the creation of their own artistic methods. Inspiration for these workshops stems from Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot and performance workshop techniques of The University of Chichester.
