International Director and Actor Juliet O’Brien is giving an intensive two-day workshop in Wellington. With 20 years of international teaching experience in France, New Zealand and South America, Juliet’s methods bring an empty stage alive in a rigorous, invigorating and amusing way.

Working with imagery and physicality the aim of this workshop is to give you the tools with which you can approach a literary work, short story or novel and transpose it for the stage.

As with cinema she will introduce techniques which will enable you to move from one space to another, from one character to another, from one time to another using only physical skills. 

For the workshop she will use as a literary base, Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ short story, The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Erendira and her Heartless Grandmother. You will need to be well acquainted with the story. Dates: Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 July: 9.30 - 5.30pm

Cost: $165 (incl. GST). To secure your place, a deposit of $50 will be required by Friday 23 June.

Venue: Thistle Hall Community Venue, 293 Cuba Street, Wellington
