For artists and emerging artists, we offer mentoring, professional development and our Training Company. Our opportunities are available all year round- just get in touch to discuss how we can train and work together. 

“A fantastic physical theatre workshop from Tmesis at the Big Event,  the young people were challenged, bought out of their confront zone in a dynamic and exciting way. Upbeat, energetic and enjoyable the participants where pushed physically and artistically to produce a high quality ensemble piece as part of their end of week sharing’ Highly recommended!”

Physicality, Imagination, Play


How can the body sing, vibrate, transform, unlock and speak its stories? This workshop draws from the craft of acting & embodied practices to reconnect Impulse to Action and Body to Imagination. Whether you are an actor, performer, mover, maker or interested person, this is an invitation to explore our connection and disconnections within the body, to awaken its wildness and unlock our bodies potential for expression.


Charles Sandford is a theatre maker, actor and movement director who specialises in embodied theatre. He works across the UK & internationally, including with Tmesis Theatre, Theatre Re and laboratory theatre companies Animikii Theatre & Eden’s Cave Company.
