The Seagull: Puppetry Performance Workshop

The Deep End

The Seagull: Puppetry Performance Workshop

5:00–8.00pm, 27 March 2024
The Deep End, 21 Nithsdale Street, Glasgow G41 2PZ

In collaboration with Glasgow University’s Thinking Culture, we invite you to join us in the making of a puppetry performance which uses the seagull’s perspective as a point of entry into Anton Chekhov’s play, The Seagull. The workshop will involve puppetry, devising exercises, and character development. This will be a welcoming space in which we can all explore together our relationship to the natural world.

Gonca Yalcin and Katie Moody are two theatre practitioners undertaking a project which uses Anton Chekhov’s play The Seagull as the starting point for devising, and the seagull’s perspective as a point of entry into the text. Throughout the process of devising the piece, they will delve into different histories of seabirds in the Scottish Isles and use puppetry to enable the telling of a multi-layered story. We invite you to become participants in the making of this performance. The workshop will involve puppetry, creative writing and devising exercises, and character development. This will be a welcoming space in which we can all explore together our relationship to the natural world.

Please email Gonca Yalcin if you have any queries about the workshop: goncyalc@gmail.com.

This project is supported by Thinking Culture funding 2023-24, awarded to PhD student Gonca Yalcin and collaborator Katie Moody.
