‘WHAT AN AMAZING WEEKEND! WONDERFUL DIRECTION, EXAMPLE, SENSITIVITY, CREATIVITY. THANKS A MILLION’
‘IT WAS A SPLENDID WEEKEND. THANKS VERY MUCH’
Treat yourself to a weekend of creative shadow play. This course will provide a safe environment to try new ideas, take creative risks and open up the possibilities of working with light and shadows under the encouraging watchful eye of course leaders Isobel Smith and Raven Kaliana.
The emphasis of this course will be on objects and light in motion, and open-ended play and discovery rather than making a show.
Students will make installations from objects and materials provided and explore the effects of animating them with light upon a screen. You will experiment with moving objects / static light and still objects with moving light sources.
There will be opportunities to work with an Overhead Projector (OHP) and play with the effects of different materials including sand, oil and water upon the projected shadows.
You can explore your body distorted by light and by cardboard interventions.
This course is most suited to people who wish to shake up their practice, improve their skills and explore the possibilities of using shadow in their performance and creative practice.
Led by acclaimed puppetry artist, coach and RCA Graduate, Isobel Smith with award winning puppet maker and puppeteer Raven Kaliana.
