Event description

Description

Join Flute Theatre for a participatory workshop introducing the techniques they use when adapting Shakespeare for inclusive audiences, particularly children on the autism spectrum. Acclaimed director Kelly Hunter shares her method of sensory immersive theatre and demonstrates what has made it so effective.
Shakespeare is often regarded as linguistically challenging and culturally elitist, but this does not have to be the case when the plays are performed. Approaching "A Midsummer Night's Dream" from a non-neurotypical perspective gives an extra dimension to its upturned world of magic, mischief, delusions, and desires. Flute Theatre's approach taps into the multisensory undercurrents of dramatic literature, making this workshop at the same time a fascinating exploration of theatrical practice.
