This workshop is an exploration of the theater-making process as it has evolved for the artistic directors of Vox Motus, the award-winning Scottish theater company.

It is designed for emerging theater-makers, performers, and writers who are beginning to explore their form and artistic voice. Working with artistic director Candice Edmunds, participants will be lead through a series of games and exercises that explore storytelling through imagery and stage visuals, as opposed to text and dialogue. Through discussion, participants will explore their own journey into theater-making and the formative experiences that ignite their creative practice.

Please come dressed in comfortable clothes to move and play.
