‘From Page to Stage; From Pace to Space’ Creative Workshop
***Due to extended class suspension at HKU, the following programme will be rescheduled. Please stay tuned for further announcement.***




It's a workshop series (two 3-hour sessions) focusing on how movements and texts complement each other.  Contemporary physical theatre training merging with creative writing exercises focusing on the topic of 'Ideal Self' will kick start participants coming up with original material, and visualizing them physically and sonically with the help of live music playing by musician Jing Wong and live recording and looping of their voices during the workshop.  This will be an intense experience with an expressive outlet that also shows them how to present their writings from page to stage.
