Punchdrunk Enrichment Weekend Workshop
Performance and Devising: Punchdrunk Enrichment Weekend Workshop
This two-day progressive physical performance workshop will support participants to develop their non-verbal devising skills. We use short stories as a starting point for exploring how to develop character in response to site, sound and source material.
Participants will work with an experienced Punchdrunk Performer as a Facilitator who will introduce the creation methods that inform the basis that both PunchDrunk Enrichment and their original and existing performing company, Punchdrunk, score much of their unique creative process from.
