This workshop is now full, Lucy is doing another workshop in Brighton the following weekend, https://www.tickettailor.com/events/lucyhopkins/255839/
 


Have you ever thought youre a total idiot? Good news! You probably are.
 
There’s a whole world of beautiful performance to be made if we can get in touch with our our magnificent inner idiot, take a risk, follow our impulse and find the pleasure in playing from exactly who we are. Beautiful.
 
Every single interaction with another human being is a performance. To perform well, we have to be prepared to connect with others authentically. An authentic presence is touching, beautiful, powerful and, often, wonderfully ridiculous. 

In this workshop, we’ll play a lot of games, laugh at each other, laugh at ourselves, perhaps cry a bit (hope not too much crying), and get some great insight into who we are as performers and people and the incredible potential to be found in working with what we’ve got.

 
Suitable for: anyone who interacts with humans.
