Much of the theatre we make starts with a script and a story given to us by someone else.  But what if we could start from scratch?  What if we could make theatre from our own ideas, our own perspective, our own stories? What if it all started with us? The workshop explores creative ways to devise original theatre work from our experience and opinions of the world we live in.
