Devising Performance for the Very Young

Amanda Pintore

United States

Fri 20 Oct

Join U.S. artist Amanda Pintore in exploring her method of creating research-based Theatre and Dance for the Very Young (TDVY) performances by working with children ages 0-6 years and their carers/educators as creative partners in the process. Participants will gain an understanding of this methodology, activate components of the devising process on their feet, and share their work with each other. This embodied workshop centres play as practice, examines the translation of creative research into performance, and is suited for anyone with an interest in the artistic experiences of very young children.

Please dress comfortablly.
