In this two-day workshop on micro cinema theatre, participants will explore how video and CCTV cameras, projectors and simple everyday objects can be used to discover secret worlds usually hidden to the human eye.
Playing with scale, focus and light and exploring two and three dimensions, we can decide which materials work best for the stories we want to tell. Combining these discoveries with more traditional forms of performance, we can create a theatrical style that allows the performers to share the space with the screen.
Suitable for all creatives on or off stage.
