Devising Masterclass: Exeter Northcott Futures

  • Show Information

Exeter-based poet, performance-maker and deviser Charice Bhardwaj delivers this workshop.

About the artist

Charice Bhardwaj is a poet, performance-maker and deviser based in Exeter. Playfully bold, with sharp edges, she has a love for devising new works which attempt to explore sticky social topics with gravy and punch. Previous and current projects speak to food, queer collaboration, and Devon’s imperial history.

Charice has worked with bodies such as University of Exeter, Quirk Theatre, Beyond Face, Spork! Poetry, and Out & About: Queering the Museum. Mixing rhythm, music, comedy and multi-layered identities, Charice’s work is fresh, responsive and alive. She recently co-wrote Rhia and the Tree of Lights, a family show about a British-Indian girl’s relationship to her ancestors, the Jurassic Coast, and the festival of Diwali.

This workshop is aimed at early career artists, age 18+ only.
