About the workshop:
Can theatre emerge from an inner impulse, a sensation, a feeling, an image, a dream?
Can narrative originate in the movement dynamic of the body?
Are events and external stimuli the only way to make theatre, or can the body be a storehouse of stories?
Is there a process to make theatre from inside to out?
