Just read an email I got today about a free mid term workshop at IMMA. It is welcoming back Theatre Lovett this autumn for its fourth collaboration, a series of 2 hour family drama workshops for children aged 7+ and adults – at the same time. These sessions have a Halloween theme and introduce families to the exhibition Leonora Carrington: The Celtic Surrealist.
Leonora Carrington's work explores themes of transformation and metamorphosis, the key skills that an actor employs on stage in character. Taking as inspiration from a selection of works from the exhibition, children aged 7+ and accompanying adults will explore the actor's journey from man or woman, boy or girl, to creature and back again. Explore the depths of Carrington's surreal worlds by bringing them off the canvas and into the room as Theatre Lovett introduce you to their unique style of performance, one that embraces the mischievous spirit of play.
This is a workshop where both children and adults can participate together. IMMA advise wearing comfortable clothing as everyone will be up on their feet.
To book a free place please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, children’s name/s and age/s and which workshop you would like to attend. Places are limited so early booking is recommended.
