manipulate Visual Theatre Festival 2017
Now that the manipulate Visual Theatre Festival 2017 has been launched, we can announce that Dance Base will be hosting a workshop, as part of the festival.
Seed of a City: Object Theatre Masterclass with Oliver Ducas | Sun 29 Jan – Tue 31 Jan | £125
With the show Cities, Olivier Ducas presents a collection of imaginary cities constructed with objects. Halfway between theatre and installation, the show draws up in a few strokes, sociological, economical, historical or intimate portaits of possible cities.
The workshop offers participants the opportunity to follow the creative process used for this show to create their own city. Through a series of exercices they will learn to recognize the poetical capacity of objects. They will experiment with simple text material adapted to the object. Finally, they will learn to master the relationship between actor and object! With a language that merges text, image, sound and acting, each participant will build their own 'city'. A short stage performance that is, precise and rich like a finely theatrical piece.
