Micro Cinema Theatre
By using video and cctv cameras, projectors and simple technology, we can explore objects, puppets and the human body to discover a new type of cinema. Then by combining these discoveries with the more traditional forms of performance we can create a 'Micro Cinema Theatre'
During this practical workshop we will be using a multitude of objects and materials and construct environments to film and improvise performance.
We will explore hidden movements and unlock tiny details that are normally lost in a theatre space. Playing with scale, focus, light and sound we will explore both 2 and 3 dimensional worlds and discover which materials work best for the story we are trying to tell.
Suitable for puppeteers, actors, musicians, film makers, film animators, writers and directors.
Duration: 20 to 35 hours
Capacity: maximum 12 people

Quotes from previous workshop participants:
“This was a very valuable, well lead and resourced workshop. The techniques shared and the context in which we were invited to explore them collaboratively, was very well thought out and inspiring.”
“After a brief introduction we began playing, making and experimenting pretty much straight away, and the possibilities inherent in the technology became immediately apparent. The focus on theatre-making meant the learning had immediate application for my practice.”
“I believe the techniques taught in the workshop would greatly benefit all practitioners in the fields of Theatre, Design and Live music performances.”
