Table Stories – Spill Festival (2018)

Created 2018

Back to participation

Table Stories (Spill Festival) took participants from thinking together about the rudimentary building blocks of stories, through to creating their own stop-motion animated film.

In the process, participants explored what it is to cast characters meaningfully from a collection of inanimate objects, as well as playing with and refining the craft of object choreography, positioning bodies in space to create a narrative on stage. The technique of tabletop storytelling with objects, is one in which all participants can see themselves represented on the miniature stage by the non-human cast.

Using the thinking and practice at the core of Complete Works: Table Top Shakespeare, while offering a quick and accessible way-in to the work, unhooked from Shakespeare, with a tangible, take-away output.
