News and open events.

Kay has a place in the Funny Women stage awards on Tuesday May 14th at the Betsey Trotwood, 56 Farringdon Road, London EC1R 3BL. Looking forward to an evening of helpless laughter with other Funny Women. Tickets here.

And the very next night, Wednesday May 15th, she’s back at Nerd Nite at the Backyard Comedy Club, Bethnal Green, delivering another science comedy rant. This time the subject is Gender Differences in the Metabolism and Effects of Alcohol. Also known as, “Male drunks are from Mars, female drunks are from Venus and will be arriving a little later”. Tickets on sale close to the show date.

Meanwhile, across the pond, Paul is about to open in Sister Act with Theatre Rhino

Paul and Kay are unspeakably excited to be heading back to El Pescadero, BCS, Mexico in June and July 2019 to facilitate 2 more weeks of Modern Elder Academy!

who we are

The core team is Kay Scorah (London based) and Paul Loper (San Francisco). We also have a global network of artists, facilitators and consultants with whom we love to work. If we can't help you (and we'll tell you if we can't) there’s a good chance we'll know someone who can.

We apply the techniques that we have learned and continue to learn throughout our lives in business, facilitation and coaching, theatre making, scientific research, dance and choreography, music, academia, storytelling, yoga teaching.

We're interested in working with clients and collaborators who want to learn to express themselves more clearly and honestly, and understand each other more completely. We'll work with anyone who is looking for real change and real challenge. If the words "we want to be seen to be..." appear in your brief, we may not be the right team for you.

we offer...

facilitation with groups of all sizes in business, the arts, charitable organisations and academia; helping people to express their ideas and desires, resolve conflicts,create products, ideas and solutions, embody their values, form teams, make the most of diversity, solve problems, tell their stories and listen to others. 

training for individuals and groups in story-telling, self-expression, creativity, facilitation, qualitative research, presentation, on-camera technique, movement, resolving internal and external conflict.

public speaking. If you're looking for someone to open a conference or event with something out of the ordinary....

storytelling. We make movies, dances, shows and music for ourselves and for our clients. We also write, act, dance, teach, learn, listen, speak. 

qualitative research using image and movement as well as talking; within organisations and with consumers and other stakeholders. We are among the most experienced and thoroughly trained moderators around, with many years of experience and drawing on a range of techniques from business, programme making, the arts and social psychology (T-group).
