About Manipulate Festival: Workshop: What Makes A Good Show - CANCELLED
“What makes a good idea for a show?” can be a deceptively difficult question to answer at any stage in one’s career, but doubly so when there is the agenda of creating a show that is visually / physically driven. In this workshop Al will work with participants to explore approaches to identifying, developing and pitching concepts for future shows with presenting partners, audiences and collaborators in mind. Participants will be asked to arrive at the workshop ready to talk about an idea for a show they might want to make.
Al Seed is a performance maker with over 20 years experience. The shows he has created in the fields of theatre, visual and physical theatre, dance, circus, outdoor arts and one-on-one performance have earned him Fringe First, Herald Angel, Herald Little Devil, and Total Theatre Awards. He has delivered projects in Japan, Australia, Malaysia, Russia, and throughout Europe. He has been the resident mentor at Dance Base, Edinburgh, as well as the artist in residence for the Arches, Glasgow, and the Byre Theatre, St. Andrews. From 2009-2014 he was the founding Artistic Director of Surge, Scotland’s national organisation for physical performance.
