Play in Motion


Please log in to join this organisation.

Play in Motion is an opportunity to explore physicality and play as a means of devising theatre. As Theatre and Performance students we have formed this society to experiment with these skills and meet students in the process. We want to create a safe environment where students feel it is okay to make mistakes, to experiment and to play without the fear of judgement. 

We provide a weekly drop in session that aims to help develop skills as a performer, whether for a professional craft, or a personal practice. These sessions may or may not produce performance pieces. Overtime we will identify specialists who will come in to deliver sessions. See updates on our Facebook Group. (

We would all love the opportunity to share the exploration with students from both Falmouth and Exeter. This collaboration will also help to build a friendly and family-like culture within AMATA and the university as a whole. We hope our society will eventually grow into something that isn’t just led by us founders, but input is given by everyone who shows an interest in physical theatre, teaching and learning from others.

The society runs through weekly drop-in sessions. Feel free to come as often or as in-frequently as you like, there is no pressure to attend when you feel you have too much else going on, though hopefully the sessions will be a respite from your academic studies.

The skills gained through attending these sessions will be purely personal, rather than scheduled, you won’t have to demonstrate you can do a backflip by week 10, if you feel that is isn’t for you then you can simply stop coming, but hopefully it will inspire people to make use of the space available in the AMATA building and start to create work that could potentially be performed.

These sessions are open to all people of every ability. Everybody will be enabled to attend regardless of previous experience.
