When we play, we are full of energy, alert, spontaneous. We look for playfulness in others, listen to creative impulses in ourselves. And we have fun! – lots of it.

When playing we tend not to judge ourselves. Playing involves accepting then enjoying our stupidity. It’s a serious business! This workshop will offer ways in which the performer can use play to discover firstly, their own physical expressiveness and stupidity and secondly, how to use this to establish a direct, playful relationship with the audience.
