The Lung Ha Theatre Company Ensemble met up on Zoom every Tuesday for their weekly acting training class during the global pandemic of Covid-19 in 2020 and 2021. Throughout this time, we continued to work with Scotland’s leading freelance artists in the field of movement, voice, comedy and improvisation. The Creative Wellbeing programme emerged during this time, offering our actors a safe and supportive space to develop their artistic practice on a one-to-one basis. These sessions allow individual actors to explore themes they are especially interested in or to focus on skills they would like to improve. The programme is led by performance artist and facilitator Kirsty Biff Nicolson and has proven very popular – so popular, in fact, that we are continuing with the Creative Wellbeing programme post-pandemic!
Here are quotes from some of our actors who participated in the programme:
“I really enjoyed the improv sessions. It allowed me to just let go and let things happen. I also loved the singing as it allowed me to rediscover and explore my voice.”actor participant
“It was good to have an individual session and be in charge of what I wanted.”Actor participant
“It was peaceful. I loved it… I would like to do more poetry with movement and music.”Actor participant
