Travel forms from ISTA artists are due on Thursday 2nd June 2017.
Participants are advised to arrive into Manchester by evening on Thursday 29th June 2017 and should not plan to leave the Univerisity until after the last session finishes at 3:00pm on Sunday. Early departures will mean a fully completed certificate of attendance will NOT be able to be issued.
All participants should fly into Manchester International Airport.
Participants will be asked to make their own way from the airport to their hotels, using public transport (direct train line) or taxis. If the latter, the journey will take approximately 30 minutes and cost in the region of 20.00-30.00GBP.
Participants will be responsible for booking their own hotel accommodation in Manchester.
Registration fees are:
775.00GBP for teachers from ISTA member schools;
840.00GBP for teachers from non-member schools.
Fees include lunches and tea/coffee breaks daily; master class and theatre ticket.
Lunches are provided daily along with tea/coffee breaks; breakfast and evening meals are not included.
All participants will take part in one 90-minute master class with Sarah Mardel: An Introduction to Puppetry: when three become one.
With puppets, as with humanity, it all begins with the breath. In this Masterclass we will discover just how different objects breathe, and once they breathe, they are alive! Teachers will explore how objects move, think and talk, create characters where there was once a scrunched up piece of brown paper. It has feelings and thoughts, it acts and reacts, and until its breath is taken away, we are compelled to watch it. Teachers will also learn the skills needed to bring banraku style puppets to life, where three people must work together to become one. Through improvisation and interaction with the puppets, a new and exciting world of creative possibilities will open up for you and your students.
All participants will attend one professional theatre performance.
In this case we have been extremly fortunate to get tickets for Fatherland. By Frantic Assembly.
Created by Frantic Assembly's Scott Graham, Karl Hyde from Underworld and playwright Simon Stephens (Punk Rock, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), FATHERLAND is a bold, ambitious show about contemporary fatherhood in all its complexities and contradictions. This daring collage of words, music and movement will reinvent the Theatre, animated by a 13-strong cast and a multitude of voices.
