A practical double workshop for anyone that would like to produce a play run by myself Gemma Lloyd.

I’ve produced in theatre, film and dance and describe myself as a front-line producer. I’ve produced on the London Fringe and in venues like JW3,  the Bush Theatre and Sadler’s Wells, I’ve been runner up for the JMK award with director Roy Weise and currently working on Yolanda Mercy’s one woman show On The Edge Of Me and Daniel York’s the forgotten of the forgotten.

In film, a short I produced No Love Lost has won over 18 world-wide competitions and recently I promoted the feature STILL, starring Aidan Gillen and Amanda Mealing and now working on Tree Tops, the latest feature film by Blunt Stuff.
So you want to produce a play will cover:

Working with a writer. The relationship between you and the director. Seeking funding, there is still some about including the Arts Council and crowd-funding. Choosing and winning a venue for your production. Gathering the most effective creative team around you and casting your play. Finding and targeting your audience. Marketing your play. Inviting the critics. And keeping going.

The next date is Saturday 18th March 2017, times 11.00am-6.00pm each time and it will take place at Theatre Delicatessen, Canary Wharf, London. The cost is £70.00 in advance or £120 on the door.

I am limiting the places to 10 and you don’t need to have had previous producing experience to take part.

Right now I’m working on two plays simultaneously and it’s an interesting experience, I’m loving it.   I’m producing Shemirah and I am associate producer on Lady Precious Stream.

Theatre has been really tricky for me for a while, but these two productions have been proper adventures and have made me realise there is a place for theatre in the world if it acknowledges the world around us.

All the while I have act up waving at me and my new enterprise Love Art beating gently at my side.

act up is the backbone to all of my work and without it I wouldn’t be producing and I wouldn’t have met so many brilliant people. I’ve also recently begun representing actors as an agent and many began with act up courses.

If they hadn’t trusted me and I hadn’t trusted then we wouldn’t be in the brilliant situation we are in right now.

So the moral is, if there is one at all is never say never to anything and if you are looking for representation or are interested in producing, you might just want to start with an act up course.

The term minimalism is also used to describe a trend in design and architecture where in the subject is reduced to its necessary elements. Minimalist design has been highly influenced by Japanese traditional design and architecture. In addition, the work of De Stijl artists is a major source of reference for this kind of work.
