About the workshop
Bootworks presents a four days professional workshop that will give a group of students/artists the opportunity to work with the directors of the company. Participants will work with Bootworks’ world famous Black Box Theatre installation, and work with a range of methods and mediums to explore the making of theatre for small audiences, deconstructing story/text for performance and multidisciplinary intimate scale performance. We will be using text, story, objects, props, puppetry and analogue back-projection.

Over the four days participants will explore and work with contemporary devising processes, identical to those that Bootworks uses professionally and academically.
