Inclusive Theatre

Inclusive Theatre

LAMDA grad Nathalie Carrington is working with drama school graduates and performers with learning disabilities to explore how interaction between these two groups can impact theatre training and communal arts activity.

Following her graduation from LAMDA’s BA (Hons) Professional Acting in 2011, Nathalie has since started a Master’s Degree in Inclusive Arts Practice at the University of Brighton. She is now combining her previous training at LAMDA with what she has learnt about inclusive practice in her Masters to explore how a two-way creative exchange between those with formal drama training and performers with learning disabilities can impact theatre as a training and communal activity.

Nathalie is currently working alongside three drama school graduates and three performers with learning difficulties from various creative community groups she runs in Hammersmith and Fulham. Over the course of eight-weeks, the group will be exploring creative collaborations through interactive games and devised theatre workshops at LAMDA.

LAMDA are pleased to be able to partner with Nathalie and support her research on inclusive theatre through providing free rehearsal space for the group to meet and work together.

Nathalie writes a reflective diary of each of the group’s workshops on her blog, and the group will be sharing their work at LAMDA in early December.
