Devising Theatre with Objects, Puppets and Materials
A talk, accompanied by filmed images, in which Rene Baker presents a method of devising visual theatre that takes the object as starting point. In this process the material’s theatrical potential is first “brainstormed” using epistemic play (what does this object do?), ludic play (what can I do with it?), image-making (both static and moving) and improvisation in situation, after which both perception and analysis are used to develop the performance concept and visual script.
The workshop series, which begins directly after the talk, is bookable. Places for the workshop, which runs for two days, are limited, please find details here:
