Introduction to BFT

This two-day workshop is an introduction to BFT’s unique approach to devising and creating theatre based on the lived-experience of individuals.
Akin to documentary journalism, our approach to generating new theatrical material seeks to give an authentic expression to untold stories, often focused on issues of social justice, societal taboos and human rights.

How to Work and Rehearse Online

International Summer School

BFT’s two-week residential summer school offers a total immersion into BFT’s unique approach to devising and creating theatre, combining an in-depth exploration of art-activism together with a raft of theatrical techniques culminating in the creation of a brand new piece of work.
Each year the summer school takes place in a different city located in one of the post-Soviet Union states. Against this backdrop, students learn about the history of dictatorial rule that oppressed the region for nearly 70 years, and how its legacy extends to the present day
