2019: JUL 5-7 conducting - Spontaneity & ritual

with Simon Floodgate & Andrew Gray

IN BUCKDEN, CAMBRIDGESHIRE

FROM SUPPER AT 6PM ON FRIDAY EVENING TO SUNDAY 3.30PM

A key role in the Playback Theatre process, this weekend will support deeper understanding and practice: how to be ‘in the moment’ with the collective experience as well as holding and containing the process, managing transitions from one moment to the next; inviting stories from teller to teller, story to story, and on to ending a performance. How do you bring your full self into the many roles of a conductor, developing presence, managing rhythm, context & content? Our trainers will work with your individual needs and level of experience.
