Workshop with Azeem Hamid
The focus of the workshop is to create a narrative through visual imagery and analytically interpreting it through the use of body and expressions; hence, creating characters through individual observation and imagination. Understanding the role of characters in society and how they are manipulated, recreated and re-imaged.
The workshop covers core metrics such as trust and confidence building, understanding the use of language (non-verbal / verbal), critical thinking achieved through improvisation given a specific structure and enhancing leadership skills while developing your own characteristics / character.
The workshop aims at three components which are Critical/Responsive, Creative/Productive and Critical/Historical.
