About the workshop:
With devised theatre becoming an increasingly popular approach among emerging theatre artists, bluemouth inc. offers a workshop exploring some of the essential methods and techniques for collaborating across a variety of artistic disciplines in the absence of a centralized artistic ‘vision’, ‘director’ or authorial voice.
It is obviously challenging to pin down exact methods for devising interdisciplinary performance as every group of collaborators will have a different mix of artistic practices and ways of approaching the creative process. bluemouth inc proposes that a common method of approach is to begin by focusing on form, and then extract thematic ideas and develop them.
Over the course of the three session workshop participants will collectively brainstorm, generate, prototype and map a piece of interdisciplinary performance around a chosen theme.
