The Magic Theatre: A Two-Day Theatre Masterclass with Mitch Mitchelson
Herman Hesse’s novel ‘Steppenwolf’ features a magic theatre that is transformative. In this spirit Mitch Mitchelson will draw on variety of theatre techniques, the comedic ,the power of the ensemble , improvisation , the art of devising, to create our own form of theatrical magic. He will explore how this can be effected simply but imaginatively through the actors body , their imagination, their creativity with other actors, the transformative power of simple props ,and use of space, towards the devising of a short piece of epic theatre based on a literary source.
Mitch Mitchelson is a free-lance director, and theatre practitioner. His work has encompassed work shopping the Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre , coaching the Harry Potter actor Danial Ratcliffe and directing and devising plays in the leading Drama Schools of the U.K. and worked as a tutor through Ireland and Europe.
