Laboratory Explorations: Peta Lily Workshop

Presented by: Performance Practice Working Group
Location: RS2 (Roborough Studios, Prince of Wales Road)
Postcode: EX4 4SB  Show on Map

Peta Lily is an award-winning performer, theatre maker, workshop leader, and director - well-known for her insightful solo performances including Wendy DarlingBegToplessMidriff, Invocation, Chastity Belt and Imperfection. 

Lily's teaching is vibrant. People learn loads and unlock their performance energy. Her teaching style reflects a synthesis of her rich range of influences including Jacques Lecoq, Philippe Gaulier, Monika Pagneaux, Theatre du Mouvement (Corporeal Mime), Yoshi Oida, Carlo Boso (Commedia dell'Arte), Sankai Juku and Natsu Nakajima (Butoh Dance).

She helps people stretch their emotional, physical and imaginative expressive range and in her Clown and Comedy teaching, she demystifies the rules of comedy. PPWG is excited to bring Peta Lily to the Drama Department for a weekend workshop as part of a larger exploration of practice that will lead to a T3 show. We are looking for enthusiastic performers who can commit to a few days of training and devising each term.

Places are limited to 18.

Please contact Howard Gayton to express your interest and for more information: PPWG@exeter.ac.uk

Alright Petal?

Presented by: Beyond Face Theatre Company
Location: TS3 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)
Postcode: EX4 4LA  Show on Map

A sunflower, a lily or a rose? Which flower do you see yourself as? Flowers are beautiful, they come in different shapes and sizes. We appreciate their beauty just simply for what they are. It's time we all did the same for black women. Alright Petal? is Beyond Face's new piece of work from their emerging artist ensemble. A show that tells stories of how these women want to be seen. In a world of feminist discussion let's make sure all voices are heard. 

Beyond Face are a Plymouth-based Company supported by the National Lottery Project Grants through Arts Council England. The development of Alright Petal? has been supported by the Theatre Royal Plymouth's LAB Associate programme 2018/19.

Free of charge for University students and staff. £2 for others.
