Inspired by Augusto Boal, the Fluxus movement, Flashmob action and Trigger Happy TV, Periplum offer an exciting exploration of invisible theatre to provide another enriching take on site-responsive, interactive & outdoor performance, inspiring participants to create imaginative live & film performance.
Participants devise their own scenarios, interventions and characters/roles
based on social observation. Together, we generate and masterclass ideas
in a supportive & focused workshop environment, exploring skills &
techniques such as Ensemble work, Physicality, Clown, Character development,
Improvisation & Interaction. With participants we make and resource
props & costume, develop objectives, decide sites, plan the action,
and take to the streets, where we set up base, provide logistical support
and film the performances.
Devising work for an everyday environment inspires participants to broaden their perspective on performing arts and to place theatre within a social context.
We recommend the Invisible Theatre project takes place over a series of sessions.
