We will be joined by playwright and theatre-maker Brian Mullin to quickly and collaboratively explore the basics of stories and scenes to see how worlds can be built in partnership with those around us. The final session in our three-part series will tie the physical presence of the individual, with your voices, as you confidently shape your own role, participating actively in the shared narrative around you.
