The Story Through Sound Design
Led by Gareth Fry 1 – 2 Feb 2018, £300
This two-day workshop explores how we hear and perceive the world around us and how we can apply that to making theatre. Participants will investigate a variety of artistic and technical concepts from the manipulation and reinforcement of voice, to the use of sound design within a performance context and the implications for storytelling. The workshop is designed to encourage and inspire directors, performers and writers in their use of sound, looking at general concepts and their approaches when collaborating with sound designers. No prior knowledge of sound or music is required.
