Verbatim Bootcamp 

How do you turn the things that people have said into theatre? What are the responsibilities that come with making socially engaged work? Can art be turned into activism & can it have a meaningful impact?

LUNG are Associate Artists at The Lowry. We make work for, by and with different communities. Join Co-Artistic Directors Helen Monks & Matt Woodhead for a verbatim crash course which interrogates some of these questions and explores the different ways to put interviews onto stage. 

This session will also focus on how to make verbatim theatre in a post lockdown world and offer you interview & dramatic techniques you can takeaway and use straight in the classroom.
