Cyborphic is proud to announce the Science Fiction Theatre Research Lab, a workshop series on writing, performing and directing science fiction for the stage. The event will take place 21-24 May 2018 at the London Theatre Workshop in central London and will be the first workshop series of its kind.
“Little research has been done on science fiction theatre, and there is little guidance available for artists wishing to stage the genre. Cyborphic is determined to change that and to offer artists the opportunity to investigate the immense possibilities of theatrical sci-fi during the workshops of the Science Fiction Theatre Research Lab. We also want these workshops to become a networking opportunity for theatre artists passionate about science fiction to experiment, collaborate and collectively imagine the future of theatre.”
Workshop details: The workshops will take place in London Theatre Workshop (zone 1, close to Bank Station) on 21-24 May 2018.
These workshops explore all aspects of sf theatre and are addressed to actors, writers, directors and theatremakers from all backgrounds.
