Two-day intensive introduction to play (Workshop)
The PappyShow18 Jan 10.30am
"Over the course of the two days we will examine how to take what we find from playing to generate content through movement. The PappyShow uses shared stories and experiences to create truthful work when making theatre. With this in mind, we’ll be exploring storytelling using the lived experience of those in the room.
"This workshop is for anyone over the age of 16 who is up for doing some moving and shaking! We will be working quite physically, so be prepared to sweat, push yourself and have lots of fun. No previous experience is necessary - we work with experienced movers, as well as absolute beginners. We believe that we are all experts of our own bodies. Trying to force ourselves to move in a way that could be considered 'better' is not useful in the creation of work and all contributions in the room are as valid as each other."
