Winter Training 2019 Workshop 1: Wake Up!

The first of two intensive workshops

Workshop 1: Wake Up! is four days of intense physical, vocal and energetic training with the focus on opening the body and voice to impulse and imagination. This workshop is open to everyone.

Taken individually or together, the Workshop 1 and Workshop 2 of Winter Training are a moment of renewal, a rediscovery of performance as practice, and a reconnection to our sources of inspiration at the turn of the year.

Winter Training is a chance for professional performers, artists, and students to immerse themselves in Company of Wolves’ unique body-centred approach to performance.

Based on our work in contemporary improvisation, voice, and Polish laboratory theatre, our training uses movement, song and text to:

  • search for ways to be more fully awake and alive in the moment of performance, and for ways to give ourselves fully to our work, our partners and the audience; and
  • awaken the impulses and imagination of the body, and explore how to give these expression in voice, movement and speech.

For the first time, Winter Training 2019 is running for 2 consecutive four-day workshops, which can be taken individually or together.


Company of Wolves is Scotland’s only laboratory theatre, led by Ewan Downie and Anna Porubcansky.

We make performances that use elements of theatre, dance, music, and improvisation to inspire, challenge and question. Recent performances include Achilles, Unbecoming, The End of Things, and A Brief History of Evil.
