Cannonballista Workshops

Come and Discover your Super Hero Alter Ego! 

Cannonballista Workshops in Newport and Bristol

To accompany my solo show Cannonballista, I am inviting women to take part in low-cost masterclasses. Together, we will take a journey of self-discovery through experimenting with performance and devising techniques, and exploring the concept of the Super Hero Alter Ego. We will create our own  characters, based on the amazing parts of ourselves, that might not usually see the light of day!  

Cannonballista examines themes of ‘Ordinary women living extraordinary lives’; it looks at grief, mental health and coping strategies (all interwoven with humour, explosions and glitter cannons!)

What People  Say:  

‘You meet parts of yourself you haven’t encountered before’ 

 ‘It’s about having that time to connect (with yourself) in a safe environment.’ 

‘It is great to be able to meet other people through creative practice… More of it please!’ 

They describe the workshop as: 

‘freedom of expression’ 

‘a space where you can just be yourself’ 


‘magical and inspiring’ 


Who is it for? 

  • [Those who identify as] women, of all ages and backgrounds  
  • People who have worked with Liz before and want to deepen previous explorations 
  • People who’ve never met Liz before! 
  • Women with previous performance experience or who haven’t done it for a while & want to return to performance 
  • Theatre makers at any stage of their career or those with an interest in theatre, who would like to experience a safe space to experiment.  
  • Those living with mental health issues including depression/isolation* 
  • Those who would like to gain confidence and explore a route to recovery that involves creative practice 

* Due to the nature of the work, we are working with peoples’ autobiography. It isn’t suitable therefore for people who are experiencing a high level of mental ill health, who need support with daily living for example; or who may be experiencing current trauma
