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. 

Ramesh Meyyappan is a Glasgow-based Singaporean theatre creator who develops performances using an eclectic mix of visual and physical theatre styles.

This workshop is presented as part of our Weren't you expecting me? project and in association with Platform, Glasgow.  Platform is an accessible venue, more details can be found here.
