Training with Luke Abbott and Iona Towler-Evans

On this page, you will find extended videos showing some of the training we did as part of the Erasmus Plus project with Luke Abbott and Iona Towler-Evans.


Luke took us through different stages and starting points for a Mantle project. The first video shows Luke using simple objects - some keys and a sheet, as a starting point or  "way in." The next video shows how Luke moves into drama from this simple beginning.

The third video focuses on "Creating the island" (the team collaborates to create the "context"); and the final video looks at the importance of the "Responsible Team"

Iona Towler-Evans: "Ways-in"

We also looked at some "ways in" to Mantle, with Iona Towler-Evans. In the first video, she explains the principle of "Starting a few steps back."


In the second and third videos, she goes through the first stages of a Mantle about "The Office of Lost Things."
