For all who would like to incorporate live video with performance – theatre-makers, actors, puppeteers, directors, musicians, dancers, scenographers, live artists, choreographers, film makers… The workshop has been organised by theatre-maker Michelle Read as part of her own practice and as a resource for the wider community.
By using tiny video cameras we can explore objects and space and even use the human body to discover a new type micro cinema. Combine these discoveries with the more traditional forms of performance and we can create ‘Micro Cinema Theatre’
During this practical workshop we will use a number of simple narrative scenarios as a dramatic structure to work from. We will improvise performance and most importantly find ways to share the screen with the actors on stage.
We will explore hidden movements and unlock tiny details that are normally lost in a theatre space. We will play with scale, focus and light and explore 2 and 3 dimensional worlds and discover which materials and movements work best for the story we are trying to tell.
We will NOT be using a computer. We will use low tech and accessible principles and never allow the technology to dominate the stage. Participants will be asked to bring objects and materials and a list will be provided before the workshop.
