Ant Hampton & Christophe Meierhans: The THING - SOLD OUT

Date:from Tue 17 Mar
Venue:The Boardroom
Price:£25 (for 4 workshops)

An Automatic Workshop in Everyday Disruption

The THING is a workshop that creates the best possible conditions for you to dare to be another version of yourself; to take a leap of both faith and imagination, to step out of your comfort zone and engage with the world as if the things that limit you had been removed.

It can also be thought of as a performance where the only people present are a small group of participants who open a suitcase and follow a mix of recorded and scripted triggers and suggestions. There are no leaders or authors present. It comprises four sessions or episodes, each about 4 hours long, with one episode each week for four weeks. We hope participants will come from all walks of life. 

The THING will take place at Cambridge Junction from mid-March to mid-April, and the schedule of workshops will be: 

Group one: 

  • 1st session: Tues 17th March 6-10pm - SOLD OUT
  • 2nd session: Tues 24th March 6-11pm- SOLD OUT
  • 3rd session: Tues 31st March 6-9pm- SOLD OUT

  • 4th session: Saturday 18th April 11-3pm
