YOU, ME, US & THEM

Gabe Patterson hosts ‘YOU, ME, US & THEM’
The sessions are free AT VOLCANO THEATRE every Tuesday at 4pm.  Register here: https://cutt.ly/gabe and Gabe will get in touch with more information.
 

"My intentions with these in person workshops are to bring LGBTQ+ individuals together towards the end of lockdown to focus on getting back in touch with our bodies through creating work physically, to bring physical theatre to Trans* and Queer people who may not have had the opportunity to explore it before and to hopefully create something, be that a piece, a routine and/or a space where the participants feel safe to be physically natural and comfortable. The focus of the workshops is playfulness, mindfulness and fun, because we could all do with a bit more fun right now, so we'll be exploring improvisation through Artaudian and Brechtian exercises, meditation through movement and ground work and relationships through Boal inspired pair work and physical improv."

About Gabe:
Hi. My name is Gabe, I’m 20 and I’m a Non-Binary Director, Choreographer and Performer and I specialise in Queer Theatre, Physical Improvisation and Play. I am currently finishing up a BA in Contemporary Performance Practice at Central School of Speech and Drama where I’ve been able to expand upon my practice, utilizing forms such as film, drag and socio political work exploring themes such as queer history, relationships and equality/equity.
Over the past couple of years I have worked with RCSSD in 2019, devising and performing a queer musical children’s piece which toured around primary schools in and around Oldham, and then again in 2020 working alongside The Proud Trust, devising and facilitating LGBTQ+ Youth to create work for National Digital Pride and I have also worked on solo projects creating auto biographical and physical work. I’m currently working with Those Are My Eggs as a performer for their web series Uncanny Avenue, a comedy sitcom following the trials and tribulations of living with monsters.
After working with VYC back in 2017, I have always loved their methodologies and work style and I truly fell in love with physical theatre through working with them. I’m extremely grateful and really excited for this opportunity to work with VYC again, especially in such uncertain times.
