Physical Storytelling

Language: English

About the workshop

Exploring physical storytelling – bringing a tale to life by weaving a language through the body as well as the spoken word. Our aim will be to make our own short drama-poem, re-telling a theme using inspiration from a Gothic tale. To grow a rich expressive language through what each of us brings to share.

Please be advised that our main source material for inspiration comes from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein which as a 200 year old Gothic horror tale, contains some ideas which may not be suitable for everyone’s taste. – Scare guaranteed!
