This session, led by members of Lone Twin Theatre company, explores various approaches to narrative employed in the making of Alice Bell and Daniel Hit by a Train; two of a trilogy of works foregrounding ideas of storytelling and biography.
The company’s practice operates through an expansive relationship to narrative, one that moves away from ideas of character and plot towards narratives working in a procedural sense, as a score to speech and movement and as formal performance activity; the telling of a story by a gathered ensemble of performers to a gathered audience. This workshop is aimed at participants that have seen either Alice Bell or Daniel Hit by a Train.
This is the third year of the Nuffield's professional development masterclass programme. This autumn we have an exceptional programme led by three internationally celebrated performance companies: Lone Twin Theatre, Gob Squad and Station House Opera. The classes explore very distinct methods of making collaborative performance. Sessions are aimed at artists who want to develop their practice in new areas, and students and recent graduates beginning to define their practice outside of formal training.
All masterclasses are 3 hours long. Places are limited, available only on a first come, first served basis. All sessions take place in the Nuffield Theatre complex. For more information,contact the box office or email firstname.lastname@example.org
