HKBU Drama Club Physical Theatre Workshop

Hong Kong Baptist University Dramatics Club recently invited me to give a workshop introducing physical theatre, as part of a bigger series of theatre practitioners giving workshops on their specialisations. My own workshop focused mainly on physical approaches to creating character and starting to build dialogue through physical theatre.

Teaching in Guangzhou

I’ve been teaching physical theatre in mainland China for the first time this weekend. I’m mainly posting about the workshops I do at rooftopproductions.hk since they’re through my company.
