Work with Larry Lynch Belarus Free Theatre

 

Work devised around walking for 30 minutes in the space. Restrictions. When you get to one side of the room you think of a scenario in your life that has occurred around walking. On one side of the room you can stop. Write a list of words that describe that event. 

Sit and share. Go into threes and devise a piece that blends your three experiences.
