Due to an accident, Hurrah Hurrah are unable to present their work TRADE. However, Artistic Director Alison Bennett will be running two spectacular workshops at the original show times.
YUCK: The Art of the Grotesque
Friday 29 September, 6-7pm
Join Hurrah Hurrah Artistic Director Alison Bennett for an interactive experience of grotesquerie, mockery and general buffoonery. You will spend an hour exploring the darkest recesses of your disgusting self in the context of a formal social gathering. Political correctness will take a sidestep as we explore our darker selves.
The Ultimate Lunch-Hour Clown Workout
Saturday 30 September, 1-3pm
Plunge into a 2-hour session of improvised clown performance with Hurrah Hurrah's ensemble member Alicia Gonzalez. You will engage in activities that will allow you to follow your impulse and quiet down that inner critic. Come along and let loose your awkward foibles. Perfect for beginners interested in challenging their comfort zone and unleashing inhibitions.
