"We believe that everyone has the potential to create, whether it be through devising theatre, movement or voice and we welcome you to join us in the coming workshops to share and celebrate your own creativity."  
Bonni, Sean Jamboree du Pif 2001

Actors Workshop I
An intensive workshop for actors that explored the work of the Spanish dramatist and poet Federico Garcia Lorca.  The basis for the workshop was selected text and elements from Lorca's plays and poems. Participants were involved in acting, movement exercises and improvisation. There was two public presentations at the end of the workshop based on ideas that participants themselves had worked on.

Actors Workshop II
This workshop was aimed at people who wished to explore their own creativity through the medium of theatre. Acting, movement and voice exercises were some of the key elements in the workshops providing a basic tool box for the participants to create their own small theatre performances. These performances were developed into two public presentations at the end of the programme.

Teenage Kicks
A highly stimulating and fun workshop for teenagers who were interested in the performing arts. The course included theatre games, acting, movement, voice and
the chance for participants to explore their own ideas through theatre performance.

Voice Workshop
The workshop explored in an enjoyable way, the idea that everyone has the potential to make strong and resonant sound.  By using breathing and voice exercises, songs and text, the participants were also encouraged to find their own "hidden voice".

Workshop Presentations
Two sets of public presentations showing the work created by the participants of our actors workshops (I) and (II) .

Open Presentation I
The work presentation was inspired by selected texts and elements from the poems and plays of the Spanish dramatist Federico Garcia Lorca.

Open Presentation II
Small theatre performances based on ideas and themes formulated by the workshop participants themselves.

Open Rehearsal
Members of the public were invited to watch the company in rehearsal as they prepared for their production La Casa de... which was later performed at the 2002 Hong Kong Arts Festival.
