  • When:
  • Where: Seminar Room One, Sackler Centre

SPECIAL EVENT: Join Michael Pavelka, award winning stage and costume designer for the Propeller Theatre Company, for a practical theatre design workshop.

Focusing on the character of Ophelia in Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet‘, you will explore how a theatre designer may start to visualise a moment of drama, work with metaphors, take playful artistic risks, and communicate their work to others.

The workshop will include exercises in using space, objects and bodies to physically explore how an audience consciously and subconsciously absorbs visual material in performance, as you begin to turn an iconic theatrical moment inside out.

Suitable for ages 18-25, or those currently enrolled on a theatre related course.

Time: 11.00 – 16.00
Cost: £5
