THE WORK IS BOSS at The Street Theatre

19 & 20 June 10am – 2pm

The Last Great Hunt core artist Chris Isaacs will take the group through processes used by the award winning company when devising new work.  Starting from scratch the group will explore different tools and mechanisms to create content and review it.  With a focus on the freedom of play and the willingness to make mistakes this two day workshop is designed to benefit the very initial stages of creation.
