To coincide with Jasmina Cibic’s solo exhibition The Pleasure of Expense, playwright and actor John McCann leads two participatory theatre workshops at Cooper Galley that will explore the enduring power of theatre and performance as crucial means of protest. At a time when words and gestures are increasingly challenged, manipulated and devalued and when even the smallest gesture has the capacity to be utterly revolutionary it’s time to ask yourself ‘How will I act?’.
The theatre itself is not revolutionary: it is a rehearsal for the revolution.
Workshop is free and no prior experience is required to participate.
To book a place please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and which or both workshops you wish to participate in.
Welcome, tea & coffee, and exhibition viewing from 5.30pm, workshop starts at 6pm.
