This Visual Language workshop is an introduction to and brief exploration of how a visual theatrical language can work. Using visual texts as a basis for exploration, participants will have an opportunity to play with visual ideas and consider a myriad of visual possibilities within ‘storytelling’ to create a short visual narrative using choreographed movement and sign mime.
Sign Mime is a technique whereby the performer remains stationary using their bodies and hands to visually represent objects, events or actions. It is a technique which adds visual and physical special effects to a narrative.
