Rob Mennear & Phil Hulford

You'll be introduced to a palette of phrases and exercises that focus on physicality and storytelling through the body.
The creative tasks will be link to the new solo work for camera Rob is making with Phil (commissioned by Hall For Cornwall), and there will be plenty of phrases and explorations that give you an insight into their vast experiences as movers, performers and makers in the contemporary, physical theatre and film world.

The health, safety and comfort of our audiences, colleagues and performers are very important to us.
We have a number of measures in place to ensure your comfort and safety. Enhanced hygiene procedures are in place. Hand sanitising stations are positioned throughout the public spaces for audience members to use and we ask that you do so frequently. The theatre will be aired out between rehearsals and performances (for added covid safety) which can mean the space can feel a tiny bit more chilly even after we shut the doors. Therefore we suggest you wear an extra layer to be safe!
All workshop participants are asked to wear face masks from as soon as they arrive at the theatre and will then be able to remove their mask (if they prefer to) during the physical aspects of the session.
All Barbican Theatre team members will be wearing face masks (unless exempt) and will be regularly lateral flow tested. This includes the team front of house and back stage, and performers.
We continue to monitor the latest guidance from the UK Government.
Please do not attend if you
Are displaying any Covid-19 symptoms
Have had a positive PCR or lateral flow test within 10 days
You’ve recently arrived into the UK and have not received the results of your PCR test
You’ve been instructed to self-isolate.
If you have any questions about your tickets, refunds or exchanges due to covid-related issues please email our Audience Experience Manager, Robyn, at firstname.lastname@example.org
