Theatre Mash-Up Workshop
Sat September 21 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm$20
This workshop, presented by Miriam Pickard aka Primordial Mermaid, will be a mash-up of voice work and clown exercises. All skill levels welcome! Feel free to contact me with any further questions contact Miriam at email@example.com
Miriam graduated Charles Sturt University with a BA in Theatre/Media and completed theatre training in France with Master Clown teacher Philippe Gaulier. She is developing a unique storytelling format blending mythology, character based comedy and clown. She is committed to creating work that is accessible, entertaining and evocative. Miriam’s creative practice focuses on devising and collaborating in site-specific, mythopoetic theatre and storytelling. This takes place between Canberra and Central Australia where she collaborates on European and Aboriginal cultural regeneration projects and in devising immersive and participatory mythic story events. Miriam’s experience as a facilitator with intergenerational Warlpiri Women’s dance in Central Australia since 2010 inspired in her a great respect for the healing power of story and its direct relationship to cultural health and wellbeing. She is motivated to re-imagine European myth in order to foster inter-cultural empathy and compassion.
