The principles laid out in this 90 minute session can be applied to virtually any creative discipline including, graphic design, product design, fine art, photography and cinematography.

Autobiography, Self and the Alter Ego

11/10/2017
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We all are storytellers. We all have a story to tell, especially about ourselves. But what about the other parts of ourselves? How do we want others to see us? And how can we channel this alter ego to the world? This is a performative workshop which shall be exploring all these questions and ideas. Please bring pen, paper, your imagination, and anything crazy to dress up in (this could be wigs, crazy clothes, make up, you name it!).

Performance Art Workshop

01/06/2016
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Wilson, Cheltenham

 

An evening of exploration for performer and SELF(s) as we venture into the political, symbolic and personal to see how an action can manipulate you rather than you manipulating the action. Specifically, for ages 15-25, the session will ask the question, “Can any action we do be a performance?”

So, if you want to try something new or are you intrigued by the idea of artistic freedom? Do you have an idea you want to experiment with or try? Or maybe you are interested in venturing away from mainstream theatre at least for a couple of hours then come along and ‘Embrace Uniqueness’! I hope to see you there!
