Workshop on the creative process.

Exploring physical extremes and characterisation; this workshop will look at ways of creating scene ideas using theatrical and physical tools, and then on how to develop and refine those ideas. How does a dancer approach character, how does a character dance? we will explore methods of generating material that play with the personality, strengths and weaknesses of the individual, in the attempt to find unique and specialised material. Much of this work is inspired by Jos’ experience working with Peeping Tom.
