In this practical workshop for directors, Glenn Tillin of The Quarter Too Ensemble (UK) introduced participantes to his approach to developing ensemble work, touching on elements of collective responsibility and creativity at the center of his practice. Group dynamic awareness and coordination was explored through play and exercise and the workshop gave an opportunity to experience some of the creative devising techniques used by Quarter Too Ensemble with particular reference Wojtek: The Happy Warrior, playing at Phyu.

The workshop was attended by directors interested in developing ensemble practice and will be practical and active. After the workshop participants stayed to attend Physical Festival shows Wojtek: The Happy Warrior (7pm) and Anatomy of Fear (9pm).
