Workshop A: DAY 2 Exploring the library of material
Updated: Dec 29, 2018
The workshop continued with the team getting more acquainted with the system of "rooms" and exploring further the library of material. Communication already started becoming easier during the improvisations.
A couple of weeks before the workshop each member of the team was asked to hand in a series of materials. This content was used as a concrete basis, through which the artists could focus on the challenging process of working together on stage.
