Imaginary Communities Workshop

Free – donations welcome

Play, imagine and co-create a new city in a live, interactive workshop with Chol Theatre.

In this live, interactive, and playful workshop you will be invited to join Chol artists Vicky Storey and Lauren Ash to co-create an imaginary city, imagine the people and creatures that inhabit this unique place, and establish the seeds of new stories in a shared new world. Imaginary Communities is Chol's signature story-making practice which uses theatre and play-based exercises to co-create new worlds in both educational and community spaces. This workshop is ideal for anyone wanting to connect and play with others, learn more about Chol's Imaginary Communities approach, and or join others to re-imagine the spaces we live in.

Register in advance – this workshop on 20 June includes interactive elements, which will only be available to a limited number of participants via Zoom. Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Or stream without interaction below.

Free – donations welcome.
