In this experimental workshop we will be exploring the role of the actor and their relationship within some profound and somewhat disturbing puppet scenarios.
Definitely more for adults than children, these characters will leave their box and seize the stage from you. Think Theatre of Cruelty meets David Lynch with a smattering of Monty Python.
This is a free workshop in which Gavin will be testing out some new ideas. We are looking for some inquisitive actors and physical performers to try things out. No puppetry experience necessary.
Gavin Glover is used to working on the darker side of puppetry and is now developing ways to share and enhance this knowledge in a series of experimental workshops.
Founder member of the now defunct Faulty Optic which toured its dark surreal productions around the globe and freelance now for 10 years, he works with actors and directors coaching puppetry. Relevant menacing productions include A Christmas Carol and Tin Forest (NTS), Ulysses (Abbey Theatre) , Feverdream (Citizens Theatre).
