We had the most splendid of times delivering the Visual Theatre Workshop at the Audacious Women Festival at City Arts Centre Edinburgh this weekend! The work was focussed on getting to know each other through theatre games and exercises with the emphasis on fun, mutual support and curiosity. Participants learnt about visual performance by working together supportively in groups and solo, exploring ideas through subtle movement exercises, improvising around themes and placing their work within the space in different ways.
The workshop was process based, leaving participants free to play with ideas and see where they went. We explored creative exercises in a light and playful way, shaping the day to match where our enthusiasm ran. We touched on ensemble techniques, movement preparation, neutral mask, improvisation and play.
