Utilising the experience gained and expertise developed over her highly successful career, Agnès Limbos will lead a workshop which will enable participants to develop greater understanding of the intrinsic poetry of everyday objects, learning how these evocative and potent qualities can be harnessed to create imaginative and thought-provoking visual theatre.

Through individual and collective exercises and improvisations participants’ imagination, curiosity, and skills will be developed and enhanced. They will explore how the selection, visible manipulation and presentation of objects to an audience creates successful and satisfying theatre of the author.

During this year’s manipulate Agnès also presents and performs in Ressacs with her Compagnie Gare Centrale, on Tuesday 30 January. Founded in 1984 the company has presented its work around the globe to great acclaim. In 2017 Agnes was honoured as a featured artist at the world-renowned Festival Mondial Des Theatres De Marionnettes in France.
