Working inclusively with groups or communities of interest on their own reflections – beginning with a blank canvas and generating material from the group themselves.

Gemma will focus on her work with Shadowbox and the methods and philosophy behind the company. In particular, devising theatre with actors with intellectual disabilities, the creation of an ensemble, and how collaborative work can strengthen the creation of new and vibrant theatre.

The workshop will explore the creation of visual theatre, drawing on the instincts and emotional language of the participants. Exploring how to build confidence in the participating actors and to encourage the creation of visual theatre through the exploration of simple stimulus such as art, work, everyday objects, stories in the news and what is important to the group themselves.
