Meet Chalk Line Theatre

Dropping the mic at this month’s masterclass is Chalk Line Theatre, a multi-award winning company based in Luton which tours nationally and internationally. They are Associate Artists at The Lion and Unicorn Theatre, Graduate Emerging Company of The New Diorama Theatre and look to experiment with form by tackling socio-political subject matters in an innovative way.

This workshop is part of our Monthly Mic Drop Masterclass series, which invites a different guest artist to ‘drop’ their knowledge and expertise each month. Whether you are pursuing a creative career or want some fresh ideas for your free time, each session aims to inspire you with cutting edge tips and techniques and connect you with a range of local creatives for future collaborations.

I don’t want a creative career, is this still for me? 

Yes – Monthly Mic Drop Masterclasses are designed to for Lutonians aged 16-30 who are looking for a space to relax, have fun and enjoy exploring their creativity.

The session topic is completely new to me, is this still for me? 

Yes – Guest facilitators will be able to tailor the session to your existing level of knowledge whether you are discovering it for the first time or looking to build on your existing knowledge with new tips and tricks.

Will the session be relevant to the artform I practice? 

Yes – the key to any successful artistic project is collaboration so guest facilitators will tailor their session to ensure it is relevant to every artform.
