Presenter: Bill Bowers
This event is 90 minutes.
Join us for a fun filled workshop on creating solo work with award winning performer Bill Bowers. We will investigate how Physical Theatre work can serve and augment the writing process. Bill will lead participants through a series of exercises that engage the physical imagination, and bring ideas from the page to the stage. A special focus will also be on how Pantomime and Space work can help tell your story.
Bill Bowers will be performing his solo show at the SOULO Theatre Festival on Sunday May 29 at 9pm.
