TAG presents a workshop held by Goat & Monkey’s Joel Scott, exploring games, immersive theatre, and the audiences’ relationship to performance. Though it contains some interesting theory, it is 99% practical, bursting with energy and is very interactive. Participants should be willing to get up and move around, play lots of games, perhaps even sing together and take some risks!
The workshop will touch upon Italian Futurism, the work of leading immersive companies in the UK, and explore the relationship of form and function in creating work.
Participants should wear clothes they are comfortable moving in, best barefoot, or in light shoes (no boots!). They should also bring some water.
This workshop is suited to groups of between 10 – 30 people.
