Comics in performance

when 18 July 2016 - 23 July 2016
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 450

In this workshop, students will explore the worldwide traditions of illustration and comics in performance: picture-recitation, cantastoria, kamishibai and others.

While examining and discussing various picture-story techniques from diverse historical and geographical contexts, students will immediately start making their own pictures and writing their own texts.

Projects in the workshop will include narrated slide-shows, narrated panoramic drawings, toy theatre and shadow puppet construction and performance. In a series of exercises, students will develop the technical and narrative skills needed to combine hand-made images with the human voice in a theatrical performance.
