AUDIENCES STORIES IN MADRID AND BIRMINGHAM by Miguel Oyarzun (ES/UK)
Playwright and actor will lead us through his work with African emigrants, his attempt to mix the stories of Spanish and Chinese teenagers living in Spain, and working with old theatre professionals and non-professionals. You will also learn how working with teenagers to tell their stories or red gaffa-tape can act as a vehicle to enhance the cultural practice of citizens of Birmingham.
With a mixed theatre background from both traditional theatre, Comedia dell Arte, Michael Chekhov techniques and Augusto Boal and the Theatre of the Oppressed Spanish Miguel Oyarzun combines his career as a theatre maker with teaching workshops internationally. He founded his company Mirage in 2010. He is also co-director of BE FESTIVAL, an international theatre festival for emerging companies taking place in Birmingham every July.
