This workshop takes the essential elements of Polyglot’s work and places them in the hands of the students, so they can explore Theatre Craft.
Starting with known territory – games, warm-ups and group work – the students quickly move to the less familiar, exploring non-naturalistic performance and devising. Given paper and tape they investigate transformation of the universal object using simple materials to create images and scenes, costume, enhanced body shapes, as well as working with scale and puppetry character.
This workshop can generate ideas and reveal the strengths and imaginative expression of individual students. The discoveries made through this process can offer a different pathway to making a scene or devising work together.
