This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
A 3 hour devising workshop run by multi-award-winning ThisEgg Artistic Director Josie Dale-Jones with singer Imogen Mahdavi and choreographer/dancer Olivia Norris.
ThisEgg like to explore styles to celebrate different forms of entertainment; when text can’t conjure up the feeling, they sing. When words can’t describe the feeling, they move. They play themselves. When that’s too much, they put on costumes.
Participants will learn practical tools to devise from nothing; working with song; movement and text and gain an insight to democratic devising.
Josie established ThisEgg in 2010 & has self-produced shows with a variety of artistic collaborators since then. ThisEgg makes comic & intimate theatre that wonders about the world we live in, prompting audiences to ask big questions. Dressed. & UNCONDITIONAL were performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe where ThisEgg received a Fringe First Award & a Total Theatre Award nomination amongst 4 & 5 star reviews for both shows. Me & My Bee, ThisEgg’s last family show is completing its national tour of over 150 performances across 100 venues in England, Scotland, Ireland & Wales. Josie has also been appointed as a 2019 Leverhulme Arts Scholar.
“Josie Dale-Jones is a powerhouse of ideas & creativity; she's a bold writer, performer & director & has a highly distinctive theatrical vision which is about play & liveness.” Steve Waters
"A rarity... deliciously eccentric” Lyn Gardner for the Guardian
