The workshop will be a practical exploration of different modes of storytelling and collaboration, including creative writing exercises and non-verbal image-based workshops.


Kaite O’Reilly is an award-winning playwright based in Wales and was fortunate to train over several years with renowned Brazilian director and pedagogue Augusto Boal. She will lead a practical workshop introducing Boal’s Image Theatre, an egalitarian form where participants mirror and mould each other into scenarios revealing aspects of their experience. She will also offer entry points to creative writing through ‘sensorial writing’. Several lectures about Disability arts and culture in the UK will be given. She will also share videos of her award-winning work with disabled and deaf performers.
