Can theatre emerge from an inner impulse, a sensation, a feeling, an image, a dream?
Can dramatic narrative originate in the movement dynamic of the body?
Are events and external stimuli the only way to make theatre, or can the body be a storehouse of stories?
Is there a process to make theatre from in to out?

Using Lecoq based physical/devised theatre work and multi-modal creative processes, this two days workshop Moving Matter(s) facilitated by Anitha Santhanam, will help performers find inspiration, imagery and a powerful structure for artistic creation.
