With over 29 years experience as a performing artist, teacher and dramaturg, Tom Greder conducts regular creativity, performing, communication and team-building workshops throughout the world.
Based on ‘Play’ as being the fundamental expression of human creativity and the basis of meaningful interaction, communication and problem solving. The workshops promote an articulate, profound, personally relevant and transformative expression for all those who want or need it.
Toms’ unique approach focuses on the relationship between the ‘Person’, ‘Character’ and ‘Artist’ in all of us. By exploring, understanding and harmonising the often conflicting nature of these ‘inner voices’, participants gain a clearer awareness of themselves and their creative process. In application, this knowledge encourages a more engaging, honest and authentic communication & performance style. The inspiring and challenging workshops are aimed at anyone who wishes to gain a deeper insight into their creativity, motivations & latent abilities, and develop clarity of expression and an empowered, liberated stage presence.
Please note you have two options to attend! Either the 2 day workshop on the 19th and 20th. Or the Week long intensive 21st to 25th. Or BOTH! People Often come to the weekend workshop to work out if the week long program is best for them. This is a welcome option.
Early Bird Tickets end at the end of December.

What you will get

It draws on the human and speaks through metaphor, parody, analogy, satire and comedy about the human.
