THE mixed bean season


With our physical theatre space temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 crisis, the SAVVY Summer Season moved online.

When developing our new season, we wanted to ensure that we:

  • maintained contact with our members and provided support to access SAVVY’s online sessions

  • continued to provide exciting and energetic weekly workshops, that would facilitate creation in a virtual safe space

  • were able to support member collaboration

  • could transfer the work being developed online, back into the SAVVY studio when lockdown ended 



The Mixed Bean Season had three main strands.

  1. Weekly Group Workshops

  2. Collaboration

  3. Show Development



1. Weekly Group Workshops

Each of our ongoing weekly groups continued to take place on the same day and time, the difference was that instead of coming to our studio, the workshops took place online via ZOOM.


2. Collaboration

Using Google Classroom and WhatsApp, we provided opportunities for members from across our various groups to come together, share ideas, collaborate on tasks and support in the development of our next show.


3. Show Development

Once lockdown is over (and it will eventually be over), the work that has been created will be transferred back into the SAVVY studio for further rehearsals in preparation for our socially distanced audience! 


Each weekly session takes place via ZOOM, at the time your regular SAVVY group would start.


We will contact you with a ZOOM link for your group.

It will be the same link every week.


Click the link at the time your SAVVY group would start and join us.



  • Do not share the Zoom link with anyone else.  

  • If you lose the link, contact us and we will send it to you again.


Ideally we would like you to access our weekly sessions on a computer. 


ZOOM is a free to download on your computer via:


If you don't have a computer that's fine as you can also download the app free on your phone or tablet.
