Autobiographical Theatre-Making

with Caroline Horton

This performance has taken place in the past

Playing with the boundaries between truth and fiction, autobiographical theatre can be a form of personal catharsis, a political appeal for excluded voices to be heard or an entertaining romp through an individual’s life experiences. Join the renowned theatre-maker Caroline Horton on this workshop to experience an approach into her making process. This is a suitable space for anyone who wants to move into telling their own stories.
