You're only as old as you feel - Teenagers workshop


24/11/2017 - 24/11/2017


3:00PM - 5:30PM


Ground Floor Seminar Room, 21 University Square, Belfast BT7 1NN



Drama Workshop (for teenagers 15 – 19 years of age) using hand-manipulated puppets at the Drama and Film Centre.

The workshops explore individual stories of ageing, focusing on how the sense of self can be lost and may need to be re-found as we age. We explore the use of puppetry in applied theatre, that is community-based theatre with social goals.

The work is informed by the findings of the AHRC “Objects with Objectives” international research network by Mr David Grant, Senior Lecturer in Drama from the School of Arts, English and Languages at Queen's. 

Participients are meeting in the drama and film centre foyer.
