Bringing the Metaphor to Life

Presented by: Rene Baker

Sat 24th Feb 2018

Price: £130.00

Running time: Sat 24 - Sun 25 Feb, 10am to 5pm

Ages: 18+

In this playful and sensitive exploration of everyday objects as symbolic communication, metaphors such as a ‘cup half full ‘or ‘treading on eggshells’ are brought from the page to the stage. 

We will look at how humans beings of all ages identify with objects and draw inspiration from their material qualities and cultural functions to articulate notions of character and portray relationships with other people or to concepts such as work, home or belonging. 

The tools and exercises can be used to explore personal narratives as well as for creating theatre, and the workshop welcomes those with therapeutic and social interests as well as theatre-makers and artists.
