The workshop will introduce the importance of working with stimulus (a theme, word, image, text, picture, music) and offer suggestions for a stimulus to create a short piece on. Participants will explore how to create a story using various physical theatre techniques, and will have the opportunity to add some text to help formulate structure. The objective of the workshop is for participants to create a toolkit for devising their own physical storytelling.
