FREE Zoom Workshop
Saturday 6 March, 2:30pm - 4pm
During the first lockdown international theatre company Single Shoe Productions, took us on a journey of the imagination, creating #TakeUsThere, a web series where they recreated places they love and miss using household objects.
In partnership with Derby Theatre, this playful workshop will guide participants through an exploration of that process. Looking at colour, shape, texture and place in a whole new way, participants will explore and play with recreating locations they love and miss. A perfect workshop for those looking to get inspired and spark some creativity in their lives.
The online workshop will kick off with some ice breaking games, followed by a guided making session. Participants will go on a scavenger hunt in their own homes looking for specific objects and then use those objects to recreate a location.
After booking, you will receive an e-ticket via email containing the Zoom link and meeting details to access the workshop online. Please ensure your theatre account has an up-to-date email address so we can send your e-ticket.
About Single Single Shoe Productions
Single Shoe is an international theatre company founded by immigrants whose mission is to create theatrical experiences that challenge boundaries, explore the connections that hold us together and celebrate our common humanity, regardless of where we come from.
They are committed to the radical belief that we are all connected. They believe all people have a shared connection, from the richest to the poorest, the most profane to the most devout, the most conservative to the most liberal. This connection, when discovered, reminds us that there is always hope.
In their work, they combine visual storytelling, physical comedy and a love for the absurd to create and tour original theatre for universal audiences. The work they create privileges an ever-evolving array of visual theatrical forms, including mime, magic, projections and soundscapes.
While their work uses language, it is not the primary method of storytelling. The central focus is on what physically happens on stage. This has allowed them to tour accessible theatre work all around the U.K., U.S. and Europe. These tours have included performing and teaching in remote rural communities where there is limited provision and reduced access to high quality contemporary theatre.
