Katie Etheridge and Simon Persighetti are both experienced educators and workshop facilitators. We create playful, inclusive and intelligent workshops for public audiences and emerging and professional artists. Areas of specialism and subjects include:

  • site-specific performance practice
  • engaging with people and place
  • creating mis-guided tours
  • performance writing

We guest lecture on Architecture and Theatre BA and MA courses, and have taught site-specific performance practice and devised theatre courses at Dartington College of Arts and Falmouth University.
