Jonathan Kay – Getting out of the Audience
Getting out of the audience is an introductory workshop where you can ‘dip your toes into the water’ and find out what it means to Fool on a stage.
This way of theatre is specific to the art of improvised performance using the Fool archetype, because you could say that only a Fool would get up out of the audience, into a space with no props, set design or script and start to perform a play. Getting out of the Audience gives you the opportunity to experience this foolishness, once tasted it draws you in to discover a huge world, which you get to play in, create in and find your Fool in.
The best thing about the workshop is that you don’t have to have performer aspirations. This suits everyone with an interest to explore themselves and the world of the Fool within a performance space. It can be a wonderful catalyst for change, knowledge, growth and fun.
