Transcripts: Practitioners in Practice

"Today on Digital Theatre Plus we release three more transcripts sourced from our Making Theatre library that enable: independent learning, skills development and the understanding of key themes pertinent to the teaching of English and Drama.

"This week we focus on interviews that showcase the value of physicality in performance. Whether it’s stirring the body to an explosion of violence or making a gentle caress peel back the years of a love affair, these three theatre artists understand that it’s often what’s unspoken that communicates the most powerful story.
