Week 8 – Alys Williams (Sardines Theatre) – Family Physical Theatre and Puppets

This week we had a session run by theatre-maker, Alys Williams where participants had a great time dancing like a monkey, a lobster, and a host of other animals, getting rained on by money, having a wash, and having a go at making some simple puppets.

If you were unable to make our session then why not join along at home with our live recorded workshop?

To have a go at making the puppets you will need:

clothes peg, scarf, or towel, round hard disk, paper, scissors and single-sided tape

This is a family-focused session suitable for all ages

Week 6 – Steph Reeves (Gynormous Rawkus) – Junk Puppets

It’s week 6 of our Culture @ Home programme and we were lucky enough to have Steph Reeves of Gynormous Rawkus  join us this week to show us how to make a puppet out of the junk you have lying around at home and a few other materials.

Culture @ Home week 3: Rosa Torr – Playwrighting for ZOOM performance

Join playwright and dramaturg, Rosa Torr as she hosts a workshop focused on writing for performance over ZOOM.  This session uses automatic writing exercises and gets the writer to think about how they can use the medium as a core part of the storytelling experience.  Due to its length it does not get down to the minutiae of writing for Zoom but seats it within the general framework for writing for performance, because of this the workshop may be best for those newer to playwrighting.

 

Culture@Home: Susanna Dye – Home: A Toolbox for Movement

Every week until 19th August we are running a Culture @ Home session on Wednesday afternoons at 2pm.  These are always free and the creatives are each paid £150 for taking part.  After the sessions we compress the recording and where agreed with the artist, make it available online so that those who could not join our sessions are able to make use of them at home.

This week we were lucky enough to have movement director and choreographer Susanna Dye open us up to the idea of using your home as a creative tool for movement and to look at these places we inhabit with fresh eyes.  The session is below, thanks to all who took part.
