2019: FEB 8-10       MUSIC & MOVEMENT

with Steve Nash & Rose Thorn

IN BUCKDEN, CAMBRIDGESHIRE

FROM SUPPER AT 6PM ON FRIDAY EVENING TO SUNDAY 4PM

Music in Playback Theatre is very powerful for its artistic contribution to the performance on the one hand; and also for its role in managing the frame, process and rhythm of a whole event. This weekend we also work with our body response to story and to each other on stage, exploring movement as artistic vocabulary alongside music.
