What to Expect

Over the course of the 10 workshops, participants can expect to engage in a fun creative process which draws upon participant interests, experiences and imaginations. Fill the Void will build performance skills and encourage individual spontaneity, creativity, improvisation and group work. The project will explore movement and acting, as well as simple prop-making, film projection and voice recordings.

During the project, Fill the Void project participants will have the chance to work with a choreographer, sound artist, film maker and costume designer. Participant ideas and input will be central to each of the elements which will culminate in a live performance of around 15 minutes in length.

How to Register

Please note that this project requires your commitment to attend as many workshops as you can, from the beginning, in order to be part of the final performance.
