with Amy Moule

Have you ever wondered what is behind a locked door?

What secrets are held or what sorts of people are there behind the door?

In this workshop of the format Unlocked, performers will use a unique key as stimulus to create the door and the world in which the key opens up on. We may be taken back in time or plummeted into the future. Performers will unleash their imaginations to unlock the possibilities beyond.

Participants will use real keys to inspire imaginary doors. Each door will be verbally painted and this description will be the platform for which other players begin a scene/story. 

We will be working on skills in naturalistic and non naturalist performance, short to longer scenes, exploring time and geographical locations, working in a small ensemble and the importance and awareness of shape of show and economy of words.

Unlock the door.

Unlock the world beyond.

Unlock yourself.

Prerequisites: Impro Melbourne's SpontaneityNarrative TechniqueCharacter and Scene Work courses, or similar training at the discretion of the Artistic Director or course instructor.
