Two Destination Language: Using Objects in Creating Political Theatre

Date:Tue 29 Jan
Time:6.30 - 9.30pm
Price:£20 | £15 (Troop members)

Two Destination Language make work about cultural identity and interaction, acclaimed for its visual and emotional impact. The company is run by Alister Lownie and Katherina Radeva, a Scot and a Bulgarian who have spent most of their lives in England. As well as developing and touring award-winning stage shows nationally and internationally, they work with people in their own places to support the expression of their identities, and run FLINT, a microfest of contemporary performance for places (outside cosmopolitan urban centres) which see little of it.

Their workshop will explore the use of objects in creating political theatre. We'll look at how common objects can be transformed for the stage and given meaning through repetition, difference, action and story. We'll build a kind of visual dramaturgy, while also questioning the role of theatre in the political arena. The session will involve some physical activity, but requires no particular training -- indeed the most exciting workshops come from a diverse group of participants!

NB. This is the workshop that was cancelled on 20th Nov rescheduled.

Our creative masterclasses, run in parallel to our theatre & dance season, offer a practical insight into the creative processes of some of the country’s leading artists and companies. They are aimed at people who are serious about making theatre, but not necessarily full-time professionals.
