LATERAL STRATEGIES with BERT ROMAN & JUAN AYALA

DATE: Sunday April 22nd

TIME: 3-7pm

LOCATION: Old Vic Workrooms, 16 Drummond Road, Bermondsey, SE16 2JX





HOW WILL IT WORK?

This will be an open conversation about our attitude when creating new work. The workshop will explore the tools and processes developed by Babakas theatre collective.

We will work around some core concepts that will give structure to a creative process: generosity, imitation and affection. Creativity doesn’t stop or run out, what stops it is the end of a strategy. We will explore the possibilities of lateral/oblique thinking/making.

The workshop will involve improvisation and will be physical. Prepare to work fast and surprise yourself!

This master class is ideal for professional and semi-professional actors, directors and theatre practitioners, is designed to help them understand how to use creative strategies as a tool to devise new theatre. Please bring with you loose, comfortable clothing for movement work.
