This workshop will explore and develop the skills and training for working in chorus and ensemble. The Chorus is the great linking device between the audience and the heroes, between gods and humans, the individual and the social, oral and literary.

With the currently growing interest in more community and participatory theatre, the chorus holds some keys for us. For example in the chorus we learn how to maintain individual creativity and spontaneity while in a group (rather than submerging in, or isolating from the group/tribe/community. At the same time we learn to access and con-join individual and collective wisdom and action, this is the historic intermediary role of the chorus that we will explore.
Short script work will be woven into the contemporary work of the chorus.

What to bring
Please wear comfortable clothing (preferably theatre blacks) and suitable soft shoes, or bare feet. Bring a light snack, for our break time, and water.
