The Autolycus Project

"....A Snapper-up of unconsidered trifles'

A workshop using devising and improvisation technniques leading to the creation of a piece of theatre.  This workshop is designed for all levels of experience and is guaranteed to produce unique results every time.

The impetus of the day will come from what each participant brings in – what they have found or picked up from the ground – those ‘unconsidered trifles’ which other people have left behind or lost.

Using various different devising techniques we will create a piece of theatre finding a narrative and story through our own imaginations and creativity.

All you need to bring with you is an open mind, sense of fun and some ‘unconsidered trifle’ found by yourself in the past few days.

This can be a day long workshop or a series of workshops held over a longer period of time.  

Whatever the group, whatever the objects, the end result will always be different, unique and exciting.  Using the energies and imaginations of each unique group they will go on a journey of discovery and imagination.

"I just wanted to write to say how much I enjoyed saturdays workshop. I thought you were really on the ball and I thought the day was really stimulating. I hope you find it really usefull and if you plan on taking it any futher please bear me in mind I would love to be involved. I'm still amazed at how far you can take endowing objects"
