What is LEATSS

LEATSS is a collaborative, project-based, week-long, residential summer school for actors, developers/directors, music theatre singers and writers/devisers. It is particularly suited to amateur enthusiasts (and those who may be a little hesitant) who wish to develop and improve their practical skills, knowledge, understanding and capabilities.

Our aim is to enrich, nourish and nurture. To do this we provide expert professional tuition within a friendly and fully supportive environment. All tutors have a wide and impressive track record as professional theatre practitioners and teachers and our tutor-to-participant ratio is high. With 4 tutors and 40 to 50 participants, we generally have one tutor to 10 or so participants.

The work is creative and inspiring, the pace impressive but rewarding, the atmosphere friendly and supportive. Because the emphasis is on process and not product (how we can do it, not how well do we perform it), we can encompass a wide range of age, experience and skill.

COVID-19: As a result of restrictions, the 2021 live Summer School has been cancelled, but replaced by an online version, LEATSS OnLine. We have also sought to expand our reach during the pandemic by hosting week-long 'LEATSS-On-Tour' online workshops, and in mid-July this year, we are offering a week-long live workshop encounter in Copenhagen. Details and links can be found under Courses 2021.
