Prom-Prom delivers a range of practical workshops related to the material we produce:
A simple workshop (or series of workshops) with Uncle Tacko! – accessible for all ages and abilities which explores the use of different kinds of puppets: glove puppets, finger puppets, even mechanical puppets. A hands-on and hands-in experience!
A lecture demonstration about the history of seaside entertainment with Tony Lidington: what is the British seaside? How did it come about? What are the origins of the seaside pierrot troupe and concert party…and how modern pop music and comedy are rooted in these very British artforms. Suitable for ages 11+, with original archive material, data-projected imagery and live 78 gramophone music…there’s even the chance to singalong! (CD-ROM of seaside entertainment available for sale too).
A lecture-demonstration on music hall, minstrel troupes, concert parties, pantomime, circus, Punch & Judy from one of the country’s most exciting purveyors of British performance heritage.
A chance to look at how to develop confidence and awareness performing in the public realm. This can be a single workshop or a series, resulting in interactive, situationist performance to the general public. Delivered by Tony Lidington (National Association of Street Artists steering group member & street arts practitioner for 30 years).
An accessible workshop for people with learning disabilities – fun ways of exploring performance, self-confidence and group awareness.
