Opera House Next Door – Using Sound
29th September 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Opera House Next Door are inviting participants to come along to a series of interactive workshops to help develop, design and road-test the interactive props, puzzles and clues for their forthcoming new opera production.
Alongside working with them on the interactive elements of the show, each workshop will explore one of the key building bricks of opera. With this in mind Opera House Next Door are aiming to help participants develop skills and knowledge of design aspects like initial mood board concept; what it means to make theatre in unusual spaces and ways; the notion of story telling through sound and how composers use the human voice to express emotion.
The emphasis will be on having fun while collaboratively solving creative design challenges.
In this Using Sound workshop you’ll work with recording devices, percussion instruments, every day household items and the human voice to create a series of short radio-type stories.
The Using Sound workshop will be held at No.34 on Friday 29 September between 6pm to 9pm
Workshops will be led by opera activist Tania Holland Williams and members of the Opera House Next Door creative team.
