Performers Playground, Itaewon, Seoul, Tuesdays from 20 Oct 2009

From mid-October, Root Experience will start a Performers Playground every Wednesday evening in Seoul from 21 Oct to 11 Nov. After that, from 17 Nov to Xmas, they will be held on Tuesday evenings. This will be a weekly workshop for people simply wishing to play with differing styles of performance and theatricality. The idea is to explore different theatrical ideas, and create a shared environment where creativity can thrive.
Each week we will look at something different, from rhythm in performance to exploring ways to enhance relationships with audience and techniques inspired by our good old improvisation friend.
These workshops are open to anyone with any level of experience, just drop in! You don't need to make any commitment, just turn up to once, or keep coming along.
The Performers Playground will initially be run by members of the company, but will then be open to anyone who wants to try out their own ideas.
If you are interested please get in touch at for more details!
