train with us!

As an artist-led company, we’re committed to sharing our experience and nurturing the next generation of theatre-makers and translators.

We run a range of workshops and training programmes, all rooted in our particular approach to theatre-making, which draws on:

  • years of performing in unconventional and community spaces
  • work with our multinational ensemble of theatre practitioners
  • our focus on translation practice

Our training activities are also deeply connected to our personal journey (we trained as actors), and to our belief that ongoing learning and training are essential to theatre artists – and a fundamental human need.

Our workshops and training programmes are facilitated by members of our Ensemble and FATT Lab or by associates of the company and guest practitioners.

all are offered FREE or on a Pay What You Can basis

‘Foreign Affairs started not as a company but as an idea – a need – to create a space where we as foreign actors could belong and where we weren’t limited by our accents and backgrounds, forever cast as the “Spanish maid” or “Scandinavian person”.’
