#JMKSpace: Creating Characters with Gitika Buttoo

Creating Characters with Gitika Buttoo

This zoom workshop will explore directing techniques and exercises behind creating the world of a play and in turn developing characters within a story.

We'll look at the relationship between character and actor, trying out some different approaches on how to engage the two. This will be a practical heavy workshop as we will try out some of this practice together in a group. Come play for an hour and hopefully learn some skills on the way.

Gitika Buttoo is a British Indian Director from Yorkshire. Her most recent credits include The Caucasian Chalk Circle by Chris Bush, National Theatre & CAST Theatre, Five plays, The Young Vic, Trojan Horse by Matt Woodhead & Helen Monks, UK Tour, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk by Shostakovich, Birmingham Opera Company, Beyond Shame by Karim Khan, Derby Theatre and East is East by Ayub Khan Din, The Octagon Theatre.
