Workshop – Listen with your Eyes
Ssh. Be still. Be very quiet. Be aware of where you are. Listen with your eyes…and theatre will happen. This workshops looks at some of the approaches of building theatre from scratch through an observation of the space between people and a manipulation of tension and rhythm to create highly charged meaning by playing simple games. The result? A reinvigoration of the fundamental building blocks of theatre, and a vision of truly accessible performance.
