Undisciplined PappyShow residency


undisciplined is a pioneering extra-curricular programme that supports Guildhall students to collaborate with each other through a rolling programme of social events, workshops, talks, residencies, resources and project funding. Designed to mirror artistic development programmes in major arts organisations across the UK, undisciplined supports students to build new creative friendships, work across art-forms and push beyond the boundaries of their individual artistic disciplines. 

Via a digital platform available on the School's internal intranet MyGuildhall, students can find information about cross departmental projects happening at the School; post updates about collaborations and watch workshops on topics like fundraising, budgeting and project evaluation and listen to talks with leading industry professionals.

Students can also apply for up to £2,000 to support the creation of new collaborative projects and receive mentoring both from Guildhall teaching staff and from the undisciplined Associate Artists.

Recent highlights include:

  • Award-winning theatre company The PappyShow delivering the first ever undisciplined Residency, with students from Music, Production Arts and Drama spending an intensive week working with and learning from The PappyShow before they presented their acclaimed show BOYS in Silk Street Theatre, in association with the Barbican. The Residency was a huge success, with feedback from the students who took part affirming the value and joy of working with other artists from across the Guildhall student community.
  • The first undisciplined funded project took place in July 2022. CAMP DRILL is a new play, written and directed by Acting student Westerfield Oreoluwa Ibikunle Shoderu, in collaboration with students from Production Arts and Drama. The performance sold out, and raised over £300 for the charity Art Against Knives.
