Play Machine

As artists we seek to create theatre that is playful, dynamic and truthful. We seek to share stories of who we are and the world we live in. We seek to play the game and (hopefully) break the rules. The Play Machine Intensive Course is an immersion of stories, movement and dynamics through the methodology of Play. The training aims towards the creation of a new dynamic theatre in which the performer plays with freedom and authenticity within a creative space. This intensive and liberating engagement with the dynamics of Play is appropriate for all actors, dancers, directors, writers and designers with all levels of theatrical experience.
