Green Ginger's sessions are designed to reignite a primal, childlike sense of play whilst breathing life into the inanimate.
Through a series of theatre games and improvisations, a typical group session will explore breath, centre of gravity, object manipulation, posture, gesture and co-ordination. These games can lead into hands-on instruction in the manipulation of bunraku-style figures and muppets where the participants can begin to develop precision eye-line and lip-synchronisation as well as complicity between multiple operators.
Green Ginger's workshop leaders like to encourage the exploration, then the breaking of rules and conventions.
