As part of Hatch: Exchange on Saturday 11 October there’s a series of free workshops suitable for performers and students run by practitioners to share ideas
Ellie Stamp – 12:30pm – 1:30pm
This workshop will share some of Ellie Stamp’s participatory practice and devising techniques with a group of 10 participants. Working with varied stimulus, movement and moments of playful exchange will be created individually, in groups and as an ensemble. This workshop is open to practitioners of all backgrounds and is suited to those interested devising work and participatory practice.
Nigel Barrett & Louise Mari – 2pm-3.30pm
‘Nigel Barrett and Louise Mari are compelling artists at the centre of an important movement that dismisses divisions between visual art, live art and theatre. Their practice is restless and probing, with a wit, intellegence and imagination that makes it sustain’
Join Louise and Nigel for a masterclass.
2Magpies Theatre – 3.30-6.30 (in ten minute slots)
A one to one workshop scenario in ten minute slots. 2 static bikes, one performer, one participant. 2 Magpies Theatre are currently working on their exciting new show ‘Ventoux’. Join them to explore in what ways audiences could be involved in the show (in a not too strenuous way).
‘The Ventoux is a God of Evil, to which sacrifices must be made.’ Roland Barthes Mont Ventoux is a cycling climb so steep that it is beyond categorisation, terrifying both philosophers and cyclists. Its mystical landscape claims lives and breaks mental spirit. It is also the scene of the greatest ever stage of the Tour de France between Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani in 2000.
Rachael Young – 5:15pm – 7:15pm
