Catherine Alexander leads a weekend-long workshop looking at Complicite’s unique approach to making theatre from a huge range of - often unlikely -source material. Taking Jun’ichiro Tanizaki’s The Tale of Shun-kin as a starting point, the workshop will examine the levels of narrative within a text, and how these levels can be differently employed to create stories for the stage.
