Double Deep Dive into: Object of Affection

Based on the international duo-show Object of Affection, the two performers of that show are giving you a masterclass to pull on stage Object Tales, the ensemble version of their show.

In this workshop you will learn how to impersonate objects. Not only for environment work or for side characters, but as main characters of your stories! This workshop inspired by Pixar work will explore silent scenes, physical work, action, love, and imagination to turn inanimate worlds into living stories!

You will never look at your environment the same way after imagining the life of all these objects.
