Visual Language workshop is an introduction to and brief exploration of how a visual theatrical language can work. Using traditional play texts as a basis for exploration, participants will have an opportunity to play with visual ideas and consider a myriad of visual possibilities within ‘storytelling’ to create a short visual narrative.
This will involve a process of 'deconstruction' taking the text back to its bare bones, considering the basic themes, characterizations and narrative structures. This done, the participants can begin to consider re-telling the narrative making use of a wide range of visual and physical styles from the abstract to the very literal.
