THREE DAY WORKSHOP 17 - 19 FEBRUARY
This residency will be based on RashDash’s approaches to making devised work. The workshop is for professionals with at least 2 years’ experience as a director, writer, performer, choreographer/movement director, theatre maker. In it you’ll explore ways of beginning a project, making physical/movement work, writing/devising text, using found/existing text and image and ways to assemble the pieces we make.
Be prepared to move, work in contact with other bodies (safely and within your boundaries), share ideas you’re at the beginning of making, work collaboratively with other theatre makers / performers, watch and listen as other people make and play.
The workshop will be led by Helen Goalen and Abbi Greenland, co-founders/directors of RashDash.
