As part of each edition of ANATOMY, we run professional work for artists and interested folk — aiming to offer as diverse a range of sessions as we do performances. Alongside ANATOMY #2, we are running three workshops, open to all.
12 – 2pm: Jennifer Williams: Writing for Performance
Poet and performer Jennifer Williams (Programme Manager, Scottish Poetry Library, formerly Literary Officer, Traverse Theatre) on ways to write texts for performance: what works, what doesn’t, and how to invent new worlds for words to be performed in.
2.30 – 4:30pm: Rebecca Green: Death Doulas
Artist and celebrant Rebecca Green (Final Fling) on creative approaches to mortality and mourning. A session featuring creative visualisations, relaxation techniques, storytelling and more in an effort to change our perspectives on death.
5.00 – 7.30pm: Emma Brierley: Ensemble Movement and Mask
Designer, producer and performer Emma Brierley (Bread and Puppet Theatre / Circus Kathmandu) on using memory and voice to create emotive choreographies. The session will build choreography from true moments, and explore ensemble movement with mask.
Workshops cost £6 each, or £10 for all three, and are free for the artists who perform with us.
Places are limited, so booking is essential: please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact details to book.
