About the INSET

Punchdrunk designers apply a cinematic level of detail to their theatrical installations. The worlds that they create tell stories. This workshop will focus squarely on how to apply these design principles to school settings in order to create high impact design that is both quick and easy to create and that tells a story of its own.

Participants will work with a Punchdrunk Designer and Director in the village of Fallow Cross - Punchdrunk’s live theatrical research and development space - where they will get first-hand experience of a Punchdrunk designed space. They will undertake a series of practical exercises to introduce them to Punchdrunk’s design principles before being given simple assets to transform a small room as well as creating smaller scale handheld paper props such as letters and notes.

The focus for these designs will be on how to tell a story through design, be that for a learning project for primary schools, secondary schools looking to create an immersive production of a set text or for SEN teachers looking to create new and exciting story installations. These design techniques will also be useful for school displays, developing exciting starter lessons and looking at how objects can be used to ignite creative writing exercises.
