Turned Tales – Creating a script from interviews
5.30 to 7pm Friday 27 May
Meet at 5.15pm at box office
£5, book in advance, limited to 15 places
A special workshop on the magic of turning interviews into scripts, arranged by Aberration.
Tom Marshman is a performance artist who transforms everyday accounts into theatre. For his Kings Cross (Remix) theatre project about 1980s gay London, Tom went through a process of having group chats over tea, then more intimate one-on-one interviews, which were recorded and transcribed before being worked into a script.
In this workshop, Tom will give an insight into his process, share tips, and talk about the issues of working with other people’s stories. He hopes to inspire people to start to collect stories and see that everyone has a fascinating tale to tell, even if they don't know it yet.
After the workshop, Tom will be performing an extract from Kings Cross (Remix) at Aberration: an evening of theatre, spoken word and music with an LGBT theme. Book your tickets for Aberration here.
“One of the most exciting things about Marshman’s work is his ability to pick a seemingly small subject and peel back the layers to expose something unexpectedly profound” – Big Issue
