Facing North Theatre Workshop

Running from
Last event: Sunday 20 February at 2pm
  • Free (booking required)
  • Garret Theatre

Facing North Theatre would like YOU to be a part of their forthcoming piece of work SEAHORSE, a walking puppetry performance around the public spaces of Storyhouse, reflecting on the environmental crisis of the UK’s receding coastline and the potential future displacement of those living in these areas.

You are invited to take part in a drama workshop with Lane Paul Stewart, theatre maker and performer of Facing North Theatre, gaining hands on experience of turning our own stories into theatre through play, puppetry and physical movement. No experience necessary, just come with enthusiasm and a sense of play.

Attendees will then be invited to take part in a discussion with the company on themes explored in the workshop, resulting in the opportunity of your voice being heard in the production itself.

Facing North Theatre unpacks stories that examine the human condition and resonate with a contemporary audience using folklore and mythology as inspiration. The company continually explores the relationship between narrative and abstract form where words can be reduced to a minimum. The company regularly explores non-traditional performances spaces incorporating the use of puppetry and object manipulation to create work that is a vibrant theatre-going experience for the audience.
