The Hubbub Way

Wellbeing at heart

“It has real importance for vocational training for actors, dancers, directors, company’s… it goes back to the question of who is on our stage?”
Helen Baggett, Associate Director, Gecko Theatre.

The Hubbub Way is a methodology of facilitating the co-creative process and devising theatre and performance for people of all ages and abilities. It has emerged over 25 years of practice, now articulated by Jen Sumner and the Hubbub team, developed with the support of Helen Baggett of Gecko Theatre. The Hubbub Way holds every person in the room as an equally valuable and unique part of the ‘whole’ and is endorsed by Derby Theatre, Derby University, Déda and Central School of Speech and Drama as a model of best integrated practice.
