This is a practical workshop that will explore The PappyShow’s playful approach to creating and devising material and their process in making their performance What Do You See?
Over the weekend, you will engage in approaches to creating movement and playing games, delving into collaborative and inclusive ways to make work. You will explore some of the exercises and conversations in unconscious bias that were visited throughout the making of What Do You See?
All you need is a playful, encouraging and collaborative attitude. You will be working quite physically, so be prepared to sweat, push yourself and have lots of fun. No previous experience necessary.
The PappyShow is a playful and physical ensemble theatre company who create distinctive and critically acclaimed productions, lead inclusive workshops rooted in kindness, and work tirelessly to develop the industry we move in through connection and uplifting.
Formed in 2013 by Kane Husbands to bring people together to move, dance, create moments of radical joy, share stories and take time just to PLAY! The PappyShow work across performance and platform marginalised identities. We use exercise and training to devise and create work. We are a diverse company and difference and diversity are the cornerstones to our work and process. We work with actors, dancers, movers and non-performers, but we only ever expect you to be yourself - we are just US. We use a physical and therapeutic approach to create our work.
Because of the live and physical nature of activity in an enclosed space for these workshops, Participants will need to produce evidence of a negative lateral flow test on the first day of the workshop when they arrive for registration. This can be evidenced via the Covid19 NHS app alongside a piece of ID to be presented at reception. You will also be asked to sign a declaration of good health with no symptoms of Covid19 and having tested negative within 48 hours of the workshop.
Please note that, unfortunately, course fees are non-refundable if you cannot produce this on the day. However, a refund will be offered should you test positive and contact the venue in advance of the workshop.
We will be taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of everyone in the building. Whilst at the Town Hall you must abide by all Covid-19 Safety Measures in place, which you can find here.
