The Programme

DSHK Company is a creative theatre company for talented young performers ages 10 – 18.
At DSHK performers can continue their journey with the performing arts and take their passion and talent to the next level. DSHK focuses on the core disciplines found in professional actor training, incorporating acting, vocal training and movement. We also aim to develop creative artists that understand all aspects of performance and production, and DSHK’s unique approach to training ensures that members will also be introduced to the fundamentals of stage management as well as other creative areas such as lighting design, sound design and set design.

Why it's unique

Entry to DSHK Company is by audition and only the most committed and passionate of young performers are invited to become a company member. To ensure that each individual is given the room to grow and develop to their full potential, we only accept a maximum of twenty-four people into the company at any one time. Company members benefit from an exciting combination of technical classes led by experienced industry professionals, small showcase performances and larger public productions at major venues.

What's New?

A Brand New Curriculum.
Autumn 2018 brings with it a brand new curriculum designed to provide our students with all the essential skills to become truly great theatre makers. Every week we will present a series of concentrated workshops. These workshops are broken into three key areas, namely theatre history, practical performance arts and theatre creation. Each of these is further broken down into key areas of study. Our aim is to provide our students with a broad base of theoretical knowledge, but more importantly, the means to apply this knowledge practically.
Guest Practitioners
In 2019, we look forward to welcoming a whole host of guest practitioners who specialize in a plethora of amazing theatrical disciplines. They will be hosting a series of workshops throughout the coming term.
Chronicles of Narnia
We are very happy to announce that our production for Summer 2019 will be The Chronicles of Narnia! This term we will have our regular classes alongside integrated rehearsals for a full blown summer spectacular. For this production, we will be focusing on a number of key aspects, namely Physical Movement, Choreography, Singing, Musicianship, Stage Combat and, of course, Acting. Our students will be able to try their hand at all these aspects and more as we move through the classes and rehearsal process and it is our hope that by the end, they will have become a more well-rounded theatre practitioner.

Some of what you can expect to learn:

  • Ancient Greek Tragedy
  • Mask Work
  • Commedia dell'arte
  • Elizabethan Theatre
  • Acting Techniques
  • Musical Theatre
  • Physical Theatre
  • Stage Combat
  • Actor-Musicianship
  • Directing
  • ...and much, much more.

The Audition

This term, we’ll be doing things a little differently. Students registering for DSHK are not required to take part in an audition for entry into the Company. However, students will be auditioned as part of the process to cast our summer production, The Chronicles of Narnia. The audition will be a very simple and straight forward process; on the 26th of January, students will be  required to take part in an audition workshop where they will work along with other students and practitioners to perform a series of Narnia inspired devised pieces of theatre. As with our previous auditions, students will also be required to prepare a second piece which, in short, can be anything. This piece can be anything from a song which you either sing or play on an instrument that you are good at. Or it could be something you’ve written, perhaps a piece of prose or a poem or even a bit of a play. You could also perform a piece of choreography. Basically, the second piece is all you. We want to see what you can do and what you can bring to the table.
