Louise Orwin & Co are offering a workshop for female and femme-identifying participants between the age of 14 and 18, as part of research and development for their new show CRY CRY KILL KILL.
The workshop will run over 2 days, and will give participants the opportunity to work with an award-winning UK performance artist and her team. Over the course of the workshop, Louise will lead participants in exercises designed to help them learn about both the themes of the work (see below), and models of writing and devising performance. Exercises will be fun and stimulating, encouraging confidence and expressiveness in participants.
The workshop will be an excellent experience for those interested in/studying the creative arts, building confidence, or those interested in a career in performing arts.
About the show
CRY CRY KILL KILL Is a radical, irreverent exploration of clichés of tragic heroines through history, in an attempt to understand tropes of feminised victimhood and seek empowerment in a post #MeToo world. Inspired by horror movies, historical and literary ‘tragic heroines’, and feminist heroes, the show will ask how we can begin to re-write our stories, how we can express our rage, and how we tell our most important truths without becoming victims, or falling into the narrow roles spoon fed to us by pop culture narratives.
The show is currently in early research and development, and will premiere in 2020.
Louise Orwin & Co aim to create a safe and creative space for participants to express themselves freely. All workshop leaders present have a DBS and our third member of the team is trained in safeguarding and will act as the support person during the workshop. All content from the workshop will be kept anonymous, and private in line with data protection and safeguarding protocol.
