SATURDAY 9th FEBRUARY 2019 // 10:00 – 17:00 // NONSUCH STUDIOS
Climate change meets physical theatre in this day-long practical workshop with Laura Ryder & Co.
Laura Ryder & Co’s new show Slow Violence tackles climate change head-on, and as part of the development of this performance, they’re opening their process for you to get involved!
Through a day-long physical theatre workshop led by Laura Ryder (The Bee Project) and Harry Kingscott (trained at Jacques Lecoq International School of Theatre) you’ll get an introduction to the company’s unique style of physical theatre, explore approaches to make theatre addressing climate change and environmental issues, and feed into the development process of this new show.
No previous physical theatre or devising experience required, just an interest in taking part in a playful and exploratory workshop. Please dress in comfortable movement clothes.
About the Company
Laura Ryder & Co. create work which integrates movement, dance and text to find entertaining ways to explore environmental issues. Their work is fun, messy and physical. Their first show, The Bee Project, toured the Midlands in Spring 2018 and will be at VAULTS festival January 2019. They are currently developing ideas and researching for their next show, Slow Violence, looking at how redefining violence and altering our perceptions of climate change can empower us to take action to protect the planet.
