The artist is constantly using their work to help people to ‘see again’, ‘think again’ and ‘feel again’. Central to the artist’s process is learning through experience, exploration and expression.
David Glass will lead a masterclass and workshop in Devised Object Theatre, rooted in physical and image-based theatre and storytelling. The workshop will combine skill and technical practice with explorative, experience-based investigations into movement and drama.
During the week there will also be an opportunity to see a sharing of Davids latest solo show Silence so you get to see the master in action.
Using David Glass’ Alchemy-Extraordinary five-stage devising process we will start from the body to explore principles of spatial dynamics, the three emotional centres of the body, the basic grammar of movement, fixed points, élan, the elements of nature and the struggle of pushing and pulling.
