A highly physical workshop from Artistic Director Neil Bettles looking at ways into devising movement focused theatre. The workshop will follow processes used in the ThickSkin rehearsal room and is a day to play and generate new ideas with likeminded participants.
Participants will look at developing new ideas for creating physical material based on a series of starting points given in the workshop. It will set up a series of skills that can be taken back to your own practice.
