My Neighbour Totoro: Student Insight Sessions

Royal Shakespeare Company

RSC Insights Day

In these interactive, pre-show sessions students are invited to join members of the acting company and creative teams in the theatre to explore how RSC's productions are brought to life on stage.

These Student Insight Sessions will be co-facilitated by both RSC and Improbable Theatre practitioners and will explore Improbable Theatre's unique approach to creating My Neighbour Totoro. It will also delve into the world of puppetry and look at the process of bringing an animation to life on stage.
