BYOF - Performance Workshop
Sat 24 Feb to Sat 24 Feb
"As mad as the hatter"
Inspired by the 19th expression “as mad as a hatter" and by Alice's adventures in Alice Through the Looking Glass artist Filippos Tsitsopoulos would like to invite you to see the world through an alternate reality and join him for this performance workshop. Using masks to explore the world through 'watercolour eyes'.
How does our world alter when we put on a different mask, a different personality, when we look with different eyes?
A playful workshop for new or seasoned performers, young people and adults.
The session will take place in The Venue at The Curve and is part of a wider day of events for 'Bring Your Own Future' the finale of the HOME Slough commission by artists Close and Remote. More details on the project here - http://www.bringyourownfuture.net
